Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7DT(BBJ) A36-002 Pops into CQ Airports - Spotted at Bundaberg Airport

On Wednesday 20 October, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7DT(BBJ) A36-002 was spotted on the ground at Bundaberg Airport.  It looked to arrive from Canberra via Coffs Harbour on a training flight as "Envoy 17".

After some time on the ground, A36-002 departed Bundaberg Airport and continued up to land at Hamilton Island Airport for a short time.  The BBJ then flew up to complete a missed approach at Cairns before it then finished the day at Townsville..

It is assumed that A36-002 will fly back South - possibly via Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) and Rockhampton Airports - on Thursday 21 October, as these training flights have done in the past.

UPDATE!  On Thursday 21 October, and indeed as predicted, A36-002 "Envoy 17" flew South from Townsville and completed a missed approach at Proserpine Airport before doing airwork and then landing at Rockhampton Airport.  It continued back to Canberra then via another missed approach at Tamworth.
