The Wedgetail was flying as "Wedgetail 04" and looked to fly up from RAAF Williamtown to complete the airwork which included several missed approaches.  It then returned to Williamtown.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 11 July, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-301 was noted back at Rockhampton Airpor this time as "Chainsaw 31".  It is thought that it arrived from and then departed back to the Royal Australian Nay (RAN) ship HMAS Adelaide - or possibly is even deployed into the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) ahead to joint Military Exercise Talisman Sabre (TS23) which gets underway in the coming days.

Finally, also on Tuesday 11 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-005 "Wallaby 46" looked to complete some late airwork at Miles Airport while on a flight out of and back to RAAF Base Amberley.
