Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Dassault Falcon 7X Bizjet A56-002 "Envoy 78" Calls into CQ Airports

On Monday 6 February, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Dassault Falcon 7X bizjet A56-002 was noted visiting a couple of Central Queensland Airports while looking to be on a training flight.

The Falcon 7X bizjet, which is flown by the RAAF's VIP 34 Squadron, was flying as "Envoy 78" 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.

A56-002 "Envoy 78" 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 7 February while it returns to Canberra.

UPDATE!  Indeed on Tuesday 7 February, A56-002 "Envoy 78" called into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports before returning South to the Gold Coast, Tamworth and Canberra.
