RAAF Boeing B737-7DF(BBJ) A36-002 Pops into Bundaberg and Hamilton Island Airports

On Wednesday 14 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7DF(BBJ) A36-002 was noted touching down at Bundaberg Airport from Coffs Harbour as "Envoy 50".  It appears that the BBJ was operating one of its many training flights up and down the East coast of Australia.

After a short time on the ground at Bundy, the BBJ departed North and was noted landing at Hamilton Island Airport.  After a short time on the ground at Hamo, A36-002 continued further North to Cairns before finally landing at Townsville.

Given recent history, I assume that A36-002 will head South from Townsville on Thursday 15 June perhaps via Proserpine or Mackay or Rockhampton Airports.

Meanwhile, on the lighter side of the RAAF aircraft fleet, also on Wednesday 14 June, Beech B350 Super King Air A32-675 "Dingo 13" was noted arriving into Gladstone Airport from Townsville.  It was also noted completing airwork around Emerald Airport on Tuesday 13 June,

And finally, also on Wednesday 14 June,  Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-302 was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from the North as "Brahman 302".
