A30-001 was flying as "Wedgetail 12" and reportedly flew up to Hervey Bay Airport direct from RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle in New South Wales. After completing its airwork at Hervey Bay Airport, A30-001 flew South to complete more airwork at Toowoomba-Wellcamp and Tamworth before it then returned back to Williamtown.

Of interest, A30-001 returned to Far North Queensland later in the day, completing airwork at Cairns while on another flight out of and back to Williamtown but as "Wedgetail 14".

Meanwhile, also on Wednesday 15 March, RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-675 as "Beaufort 02" landed at Charleville Airport after flying from RAAF Base East Sale and Canberra.  It then departed to Townsville.

UPDATE!  In the days after, A32-675 "Beaufort 02" flew all the way up to Cape York - Horn Island - and then back down to East Sale.

Finally, also on Wednesday 15 March, Australian Army marked (Helicorp) Leonardo S.P.A. Helicopters (Agusta) AW139 Helicopter VH-YBF as "Warhorse 239" flew down from Townsville to out through the Whitsundays to off the coast of Mackay.
