Adelaide is clearly a favourite destination, and during daylight ops mostly.

It looks as though EBF has commenced QANTAS freight services in the early hours of this morning. It operated QF7359, which is a scheduled freight service from MEL-PER, usually operated by B734F or A321P2F aircraft. It has just arrived in PER.

According to Flightaware, VH-EBE was scheduled to perform a EFW test flight DRS-DRS of 1.5 hours on Friday afternoon, local European time, but as it is now after 22:00 there it looks as though the flight has been postponed. It could be flown in the next few days which means that EBE has had its conversion completed and will shortly be leaving DRS, probably via PUS like EBF, for a repaint on its journey home.

Unfortunately, according to aussieairliners.org XMB was broken up in August/September last year.
