The Falcon 7X bizjet, which is flown by the RAAF's VIP 34 Squadron, was flying as "Envoy 26" and looked to fly up from Canberra to Coffs Harbour before then landing at Bundaberg Airport.  It then flew up to Hamilton Island Airport where it landed again for a short time.

A56-003 "Envoy 26" then departed to a missed approach at Cairns before landing at Townsville where it seems to be staying for the night.

As with similar training flights, the Falcon 7X bizjet should call into other CQ Airports on Tuesday 26 July while it returns to Canberra.

UPDATE!  Indeed on Tuesday 26 July, A56-003 "Envoy 26" called into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) and Gladstone Airports before returning South to the Gold Coast and Canberra.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 25 July, RAAF Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-008 as "Wallaby 56" flew up from RAAF Base Amberley to complete airwork at Bundaberg Airport.  It then flew back to Amberley via a missed approach at Kingaroy.

Finally, also on Monday 25 July,  Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-031 "Pegasus 87" was spotted visiting Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport.

It arrived from and later departed back to Townsville.
