RAAF Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail A30-003 "Wedgetail 13" Completes Missed Approach at Emerald Airport

On Tuesday 21 January, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-003 was videoed (below) completing a missed approach at Emerald Airport.  It appears that the Wedgetail flew up from the South possibly RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle.

After completing the airwork at Emerald, it appears that A30-003 then returned South possibly back to RAAF Base Williamtown.  A30-003 was noted to be using the radio callsign of "Wedgetail 13".

Of interest, earlier on Tuesday 21 January, A30-003 was noted completing a missed approach at the Sunshine Coast but as "Wedgetail 07".
