A30-002 was flying as "Wedgetail 01" and looked to fly up from RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle in New South Wales, to Hervey Bay where it then completed its airwork.  A30-002 then returned South to complete another missed approach at Coffs Harbour before then returning to Williamtown.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 14 June, RAAF Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-002 was noted completing airwork - and several touch-and-go landings - at Bundaberg Airport.  It was flying as "Wallaby 46" and looked to originally depart RAAF Base Amberley.  

The Spartan returned to Amberley from Bundy but via another missed approach at Kingaroy.
