More From the Federal Election Hustings - A Pair of RAAF VIP Transport Aircraft Also at Rockhampton Airport

As mentioned below, during the afternoon on Monday 29 April, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air A32-439 was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport direct from RAAF Base East Sale in Victoria as "Regent 07".

After spending the night, the Super King Air was spotted resting on the Rockhampton Airport apron on Tuesday 30 April.  It later departed to Cairns but has since returned to Rockhampton Airport where it again seems to be spending the night.

Meanwhile, also noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport, also on Tuesday 30 April, was RAAF Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet A37-002 which touched down from Cairns as "Regent 13".  It had earlier flown from Canberra to Melbourne (Tullamarine) before heading to Cairns.

At the time of writing, it appears that A37-002 is also spending the night parked at Rockhampton Airport.

Various Federal Government and Shadow Ministers have appeared in news reports around the region so clearly then aircraft have been transporting them around in CQ.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
