It will be interesting to see if the VP departs on the same aircraft that he arrived in Sydney.

Don't be surprised if they switch a/c for the next leg.

He has been using the same bird whole trip, they are not duplicate aircraft when it comes to capabilities.

Question Military escorts for AF2?

Thought I spotted a couple of RAAF escorts tailing 980002 up the coast around 0830 - can anyone confirm that?
