Poseidon A47-011 this time as "Blackcat 05", departed Townsville and was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
It then continued to complete more airwork at RAAF Base Amberley and Olympic Dam, also in South Australia, before returning to Edinburgh.
While the other Poseidon A47-009 this time as "Blackcat 06", also departed Townsville but was noted completing airwork including a missed approach at Mackay Airport. It then continued to complete more airwork at Brisbane and also Olympic Dam before it too landed back at Edinburgh.
