The RAAF on Facebook are reporting an unusual visitor to Richmond this week:

"This week, the 航空自衛隊 Japan Air Self-Defense Force paid us a very welcomed visit with their new Kawasaki C-2 transport as part of its operational test and evaluation.

Thanks for the guided tour! ����"

Kind of looks like the result of a mating between a C17 and a Spartan!

Saw a photo from a planespotter of it on Facebook. Very interesting aircraft!

The forecast of "tropical" rainfall totals saw SES activate and support helicopters arrive on Friday (1 Dec) to be on standby. Rainfall totals ended up being less than forecasted (BoM overhyped the event) and the helicopters departed on Sunday (3 Dec).

The second China Airlines special livery A350s made its first visit to Sydney this morning, with B-18908 touching down on Runway 16R in the "Taiwan Blue Magpie" livery.

When Sir James Paul McCartney first visited Australia in 1964, it was with The Beatles on a Qantas Boeing B707. It's now almost 25 years since Sir Paul's last visit to Australia in 1993, and this time he is using Dassault Falcon 7X OY-EJD. Paul arrived in Sydney at 0132L this morning, following his concert in Brisbane on Saturday night
