RAAF Challenger 604 Bizjet A37-002 Pops into Longreach Airport on 'Official' Duties

On Monday 18 December, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet A37-002 was noted calling into Longreach Airport.  It arrived from Canberra as "Consort 99".

It appears that it brought Nationals Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Senator Barnaby Joyce to town to announce that the Qantas Founders Museum will receive $11.3million in Federal Government funding towards their Airpark Roof Project.

After a little while on the ground, A37-002 departed for Albury, but nearing the Queensland / New South Wales border, it was seen to then 'divert' to Brisbane.

As posted below, A37-002 passed through CQ - including to Longreach Airport - over the latter part of last week on what looked to be a training flight.
