Gates LearJet 35A VH-LPJ "Firescan 124" looked to depart early on Monday and was bound for Nowra before diverting to Tamworth.  It later returned to Central Queensland overflying parts back up towards Hervey Bay before it then returned to Tamworth.

Beech B200 King Air VH-LAB "Firescan 125" also departed Hervey Bay and completed a sortie around Central Queensland before it eventually headed to Nowra.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday 4 December, a different Air Affairs Australia / Gojet Firescan aircraft in the form of Gates LearJet 35A VH-LRX as "Firescan 122" was noted flying up from Nowra to the Sunshine Coast.  It then completed a sortie from and back to the Sunny Coast, flying over fire-zone in parts of the Wide Bay and Central Queensland.
