On Friday 6 November, no less than four Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft were noted completing airwork and missed approaches at various Central Queensland Airports.
A30-001 as "Wedgetail 22" flew up from RAAF Base Williamtown to the Gold Coast then Rockhampton Airport where it was photographed below.
It then returned to Williamtown via more airwork at Coffs Harbour.
A30-003 as "Wedgetail 23" also flew up from Williamtown to the Gold Coast before completing airwork at Bundaberg Airport. It too returned to Williamtown but via Tamworth.
A30-006 as "Wedgetail 24" looked to fly up from Williamtown direct to Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport where it completed airwork. It then flew to more airwork at Brisbane before landing at RAAF Base Amberley. It then returned to Williamtown via Coffs Harbour.
And A30-005 as "Wedgetail 25" also flew up from Williamtown to the Gold Coast before it flew up to Rockhampton Airport where it completed a missed approach. It then returned to Williamtown also flying via Coffs Harbour.
Of interest, six Wedgetails are flown by the RAAF's No. 2 Squadron out of RAAF Base Williamtown, along a detachment also in the Northern Territory.
Finally, also on Friday 6 November, RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft A41-206 as "Stallion 44" flew up from RAAF Base Amberly to Rockhampton Airport where it was spotted completing a missed approach.
It then returned to Amberly and did more circuits before eventually landing.
