On Monday 30 August, Agair Logistics P/L Rockwell Turbo Commander 690B VH-LVG was noted arriving into Bundaberg Airport from Stawell in Victoria. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Birddog 273".

The recently re-painted aircraft appears to have arrived into Bundy to again provide airborne support for the recently arrived Canadian-based Conair Aerial Firefighting Dash-8-Q400MR C-FFQE which will again be based at Bundaberg Airport during this coming bushfire season.

Of interest, the "Birddog" aircraft are used of the coordination of the firebombing aircraft and are usually light fixed-wing aircraft.
