First spotting of AMSA CL-604 Bombardier Challenger

Today i seen this new aircraft for the first time and what a beauty.

Striking red and white, two engines on the back and pretty quiet for its speed and size.
I spotted it at 90 mile beach. Seems it went from Melb to Eden then did some hunting.

It was doing circle work near the prom, a Polair joined in and marine tracker showed a search and rescue boat there too.. b
I don't know if it was an exercise or an EPERB going off.

It went over me at 500 ft and was very quiet. It took me a few seconds to work out what they noise was, it's no louder than
C172 to my ears.

It wasn't going all that quick, but I can see how it could loiter almost silently.

I look forward to seeing one up close.
