Local plane spotter 'JM' was on hand and captured some great photos as the Poseidon completed a missed approach at Mackay Airport.
It looked to earlier fly down from Townsville and Hamilton Island Airport before completing airwork at Mackay Airport. From there, it looked to continue South to also completed airwork at the Sunshine Coast and possibly Tamworth in New South Wales, before it returned to Edinburgh.
On Friday's flight, A47-001 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Mariner 03".
As posted below, A47-001 - flying as "Mariner 02" - headed North on Thursday 27 September with it completing airwork at RAAF Base Amberley and Rockhampton Airport while heading up to its overnight stay at Townsville.
