Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Dassault Falcon 7X Bizjet A56-002 First Visit at Rockhampton Airport

After dark on Sunday 14 July, the recently delivered Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Dassault Falcon 7X bizjet A56-002 made the first ever visit by the new type into Rockhampton Airport.  It was noted arriving from Weipa in Far North Queensland and was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Wisdom 03".

Local plane spotters 'IAD' and Trevor H  popped out to Rockhampton Airport early on Monday 15 July and captured some great photos as the Falcon 7X remained parked on the apron - where it remained for most of the day.

Then, in the early evening on Monday 15 July, A56-002 departed Rockhampton Airport for Canberra again as "Wisdom 03".

As mentioned previously, of interest A56-002 is the second of three leased Dassault Falcon 7X bizjets acquired to replace the three Canadair Challenger 604 bizjets operated by 34 Squadron.  A56-002 arrived in Canberra from overseas in early June and joins A56-001 which has been in Australia since mid-April.

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