RAAF Challenger 604 Bizjet A37-002 Calls into Bundaberg and Emerald Airports Over the Weekend

A busy weekend for Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet A37-002.  On Saturday 17 November, it was noted visiting departing Canberra for Cairns before it flew down to Bundaberg Airport.  It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Regent 89".  A37-002 then departed Bundy for Temora in New South Wales.

Then on Sunday 18 November, A37-002 was back in CQ noted arriving into Emerald Airport from Wagga Wagga this time as "Regent 82".

It was reported that it brought Australian Acting Prime Minister Michael McCormack to town for a series of engagements.

At the time of writing, it appears that A37-002 is staying at Emerald Airport for the night.

UPDATE!  On Monday 19 November, A37-002, again as "Regent 82", departed Emerald Airport for Gladstone Airport.  After some time on the ground, it departed to Port Macquarie Canberra.
