However 24th Nov is meant to be the handover of the 1st 2 Wedgies, I don't know if a Wedgie will go up to a flypast that day.

INITIAL DELIVERY OF WEDGETAIL AIRCRAFT

The Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) has today taken initial delivery of two Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft from Boeing.

AEW&C Program Manager, Air Vice Marshal Chris Deeble said the aircraft ˆ known as ŒWedgetail‚ ˆ is critical to Australia‚s Air Combat Capability and will play a key role in achieving the Australian Defence Force‚s (ADF) network-enabled war fighting capability.

„The Wedgetail aircraft is a Œfirst of type‚ development and extremely complex, given the range of cutting-edge radar technology and sensors that will be incorporated into each aircraft.

„Development, test and evaluation are still ongoing with many hurdles still to be overcome, particularly with respect to radar, electronic support measures and integrated system performance and stability.

„However with the initial delivery of two aircraft, Defence will now be able to conduct familiarisation training while Boeing completes the remaining test program and acceptance activities,‰ AVM Deeble said.

„When fully operational, Wedgetail will enhance surveillance, air defence, fleet support and force coordination operations.‰

Boeing has currently scheduled initial acceptance of the first two aircraft for the first quarter 2010 when the aircraft will come into Commonwealth ownership.

The Commonwealth will eventually acquire six Wedgetail aircraft at a cost of more than (AUS) $4 billion.

Crikey where did you get that info from on the Wedgies?

From Def Media they were (remember they are still on the FAA register with their Boeing N series regos as well) but future ADF rego's were:

A30-001
A30-004

And if anyone asks me I reckon they should put on about 4-8 Weapons stations and wire them up to carry AMRAAMS for self defense but since no one asks me for advice I'll shut up. :(

I'm back! After having over 3 Year's back in the UK, i've moved back to Melbourne.

I'll be heading to Newcastle at the end of November for a few days, i'm just wondering if anyone know's how busy this place can be both civil and military wise? I've noticed there's a cafe & museum at the end of the runway which is a definate place i'll be visiting. Is that any good for viewing?

Frequencies... These are the one's i've found... Are these still in date?:

Ground: 121.8
Tower: 257.8 or 118.3
Approach: 293.4
Centre: 133.3 / 261.4

I've also seen 297.4 & 130.15 - does anyone know if these are still active and what there for?

Thank you for all your help in advance!

All the best,
Ant

For those interested, a Qantas B767-300ER diverted to Newcastle yesterday after circling the coast for several hours. Most likely a issue with the airplane, however it made some erratic movements, and was probably running low on fuel at the time. Registration is VH-OGU and was operating QF460 MEL-SYD.

Now described as a 'nightmare flight'. Two people injured due to turbulence. Read here.

EDIT: QF582 was also diverted, but it wasn't as severe as QF460.

Not sure if it's been reported but Q400 VH-QOK operated BNE-NTL-BNE yesterday as QF2421/2422.

I think this is the first time a Q400 has operated BNE-NTL-BNE.

No plans to upgrade any other flights at this stage, this was a one off to replace a Q300.

Most likely not the most exciting movement ever at NTL, but QantasLink B717 operating a charter CBR-NTL today as QF1954, arriving at 1505, then positioning to SYD at 1545. Looks like being VH-YQT. Another B717 charter through on Sunday, positioning in from BNE before operating the charter sector NTL-CBR as QF1955.
