Looks like the RJ85 has done several laps to Salt Ash & back to Richmond.

The Salt Ash is a problematic for ground based crews as it swampy and there is a RAAF Live Fire Range in the area. Things that go bang with fire.

Best of luck to all the crews.

Interesting that she is based out of Rok rather than Gladstone, Hervey Bay or Bundaberg, which all have 737 capable strips. Must have some interesting performance graphs.

The RJ85 is now headed to ROK ex Richmond with the 737 seemingly gone tech, while another RJ85 ex Dubbo is also now in ROK
