During the morning, Wedgetail A30-002 as "Wedgetail 20" flew up from RAAF Base Williamtown to Bundaberg Airport where it completed a missed approach. It then flew up to Hamilton Island Airport where it completed another missed approach. A30-002 then returned South to Williamtown.

Then during the afternoon, A30-004 as "Wedgetail 22" also flew up from Williamtown but to the Sunshine Coast and then Bundaberg Airport where it too completed a missed approach at each location. A30-004 then returned to Williamtown.

Of interest, a third RAAF Wedgetail A30-003 as "Wedgetail 16" flew through Central Queensland airspace while flying from Williamtown to Townsville and then back to Williamtown around the same time as the other two Wedgetails visited Bundy.
