Another day, another visit - the fourth by this airframe in just over a week!

On Monday 31 August, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-001 was noted completing airwork at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.

On this occasion, the Wedgetail flew up from RAAF Base Williamtown via a missed approach at the Gold Coast to complete a missed approach at Hervey Bay Airport.  A30-001 then returned South and completed a missed approach at Coffs Harbour before then continuing back to Williamtown.

Meanwhile, on Sunday 30 August,  Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-306 was noted also completing airwork at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport.  It was flying as "Brahman 357" and later departed to the Sunshine Coast.

As posted below, A15-306 has been joined by fellow Chinooks A15-308 and A15-310 in completing exercises out of RAAF Base Amberley.  Each passed through Rockhampton Airport in recent days - see Blog posts below!
