On Monday 24 July, three Air Affairs (Australia) LearJet 35A and LearJet 36 bizjets were spotted arriving into Rockhampton Airport where they will be based during the joint Military Exercise Talisman Sabre 2023 (TS23).  All arrived in quick succession from their home base at HMAS Albatross at Nowra.

LearJet 36 VH-SLJ as "Ajax 01" arrived first.

Followed up LearJet 36 VH-SLF as "Ajax 04".

And LearJet 35A VH-SLD as "Ajax 14".

Of interest, and as mentioned previously, Air Affairs (Australia) was established in 1984 with headquarters based at the Albatross Aviation Technology Park at Nowra in New South Wales.  They have been providing target services, fire surveillance and precision engineering support services to the Australian Defence Force (ADF), other military forces and Governments since 1995.

Since October 2015, Air Affairs (Australia) has been providing specific services to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) under the Jet Air Support Contract which provides Training Support Tasks including Aerial Target Towing and Tactical Flight Missions in various locations across Australia.
