    Yeah I read that too. Must nearly be the first royals to travel so far on a scheduled flight as opposed to a charter from one of the "Empire" airlines. I'll bet there was no chance of a FF upgrade to 1st class on QF2.

      Good point - would nearly have to be mobile or some sort of network to get those three airports down to ground level - unless it's on top of Australia's highest building at the Gold Coast (unlikely). Cheers.
      or on Mt Tamborine

        What's the betting every available seat everywhere had been sold to journalists.

          All three CL60s are still in Australia, spotted both A37-002 and A37-003 heading south in the morning and A37-001 heading north in the afternoon. Picked up A37-003 a fair few times during the day, including in the evening when it did a missed approach and some low level circuits before heading back to Canberra.

          • Why does F-YBNA1, which is over 100nm south of Brisbane and Sunshine Coast, constantly loose tracking of aircraft south of YBNA, to receivers in YBBN and YBSU ?

            F-YBNA1 picks up/feeds aircraft at lower altitudes in the area but constanty NOT higher altitude aircraft. Using planeplotter to see my receivers data, I CAN see all the aircraft, including up to above YBBN at 5000' BUT Almost never feeds that data over YBBN stations.

            Just curious as to what causes this ? Almost like F-YBNA is set to a lower priority over the others. I even loose aircraft feeding at around 10,000' departing YBNA ? Quite obviously it's not on closest station gets priority.
            F-YBNA2

              Don't forget that at least two of those YBBN feeders, F-YBBN1 and F-YBBN4, are in Toowoomba and F-YBSU1 is out on the Darling Downs. All three are around 1000ft above sea level and can therefore pick up high fliers over a considerable distance. They are not as good with lower planes closer to the coast.

              • Heres one for ya lads, up the Sunshine Coast atm.

                  Oblivian, you might be interested in this yarn. PM is (was) flying his party around Asia in a RAAF KC30 tanker not a BBJ or A380 as I surmised! Well it's not that bad I suppose because the KC30 is still a fully decked out A330 but I doubt they'd have the most luxurious fit-out seeing that their secondary role is troop transport. Have to send another one up from Amberley I guess.

                  • That explains my man on the ground in Japan spotting the MRRT along with the BBJ. I saw that wee article as I was looking at recent MH updates about his engine issues. Ooops.

                    Just don't let the foilhats know there are specialised liquid vessels flying around on purpose

                    • I have a question i hope someone can help me with. At times i am receiving raw data from 16+ aircraft. Down to Coolangatta and up to Bundaberg, some up to 32000ft. FR24 feeder software shows 2 or 3 aircraft feeding. I figure its due to my cheap setup. But from raw data i have checked out hex codes and they seem to come back as De Havilland's. Where some of these aircraft are plotted to have taken off from there is no Airport. Is it possible that their receivers have been onsold to other parties and databases havent been updated?

                        That's MLAT, check the radar reporting the data - you will find it is not your or any one particular receiver but MLAT-3.

                        DHC-8 do not have GPS location transmitting from their transponders. And using 4 receivers around the area they are able to plot the estimated location based on reception time. Therefore the flight number, route and destination are often missing as this is not reported in full from the AC transponder. However partial path can be plotted.
