Holypeak Pty Ltd Challenger 604 Bizjet N360SL at CQ Airports - Plus More! Central Queensland Plane Spotting

Over the course of this week, Holypeak Pty Ltd Canadair CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 bizjet N360SL has looked to complete a 'tour' of Queensland and was noted visiting several Central Queensland Airports.


On Tuesday 24 October, N360SL was noted arriving into Mackay Airport from Townsville.  After spending the night, N360SL was then noted visiting Rockhampton, Gladstone, Bundaberg and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports during a busy day of flying on Wednesday 25 October.  And at the time of writing, it appears to be flying towards Sydney from Hervey Bay.

Of interest, N360SL was spotted at Darwin Airport (pictured above) on Monday 23 October.

As well as the Challenger, there has been a few other local corporate bizjets that have been noted visiting Central Queensland Airports over the last couple of days.

Also on Wednesday 25 October, the Queensland Government (State of Queensland) Raytheon Hawker 850XP bizjet VH-SGY was noted making an early morning visit to Bundaberg Airport from Brisbane.  And while not quite a bizjet, Bontrail (Strahman Farms) Cessna 208 Caravan VH-SJJ was also noted departing Bundy also on Wednesday 25 October heading to Archerfield and Toowoomba.  It had arrived into Bundaberg Airport from these places the previous day.

Noted completing airwork at Gladstone Airport also on Wednesday 25 October was the Queensland Police Service (Airwing) Cessna 560 Citation Ultra bizjet VH-PSU which also flew up from Brisbane but via the Sunshine Coast.

On Monday 23 October, the Mackay Airport-based Embraer EMB-550 Legacy 500 bizjet N142GZ was noted returning home to Mackay after flying South back on Thursday 19 October - see Blog post below.

Up the road at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, on Monday 23 October, Jetstream Aviation (Emprja P/L) Cessna 550 Citation II bizjet VH-VDF was noted departing to the Sunshine Coast after earlier arriving from Coen.  It originally arrived into Prosie back on Friday 20 October from the Sunny Coast and had departed to Coen on Saturday 21 October.

And also over the course of the weekend, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" was noted visiting parts of CQ.  Late on Friday 20 October, it v...

A Pair of RAAF Alenia C-27J Spartan Transport Aircraft Complete Airwork at Rockhampton Airport - A34-004 "Kaos 37" & A34-003 "Kaos 41" Central Queensland Plane Spotting

Over the course of Tuesday 24 October, a pair of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft were spotted completing airwork around Central Queensland including at Rockhampton Airport.


Around lunch time, A34-004 was spotted completing a low overshoot onto Runway 33 at Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to fly up from RAAF Base Amberley and following the airwork, it continued further North up to Townsville.  A34-004 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Kaos 37".

Then later in the afternoon, A34-003 was photographed completing a touch-and-go onto Runway 15 at Rockhampton Airport.  It too looked to fly up from Amberley and also following the airwork, it too continued up to Townsville.  A34-003 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Kaos 41".




This is only the third time that one of the RAAF's Alenia C-27J Spartan battlefield airlifter aircraft has visited Central Queensland.  Ten...

THE ZOO 25 "GroovUs Feed Anews"

 

Brisbanes most iconic venue The Zoo is turning 25. To mark this silver anniversary, over 25 of Brisbanes most celebrated musicians are coming together to perform including:

Adele Pickvance & Ian Haug / Ben Ely / ISIS

Marcello Milani & Tenzin Choegyal / Sabrina Lawrie

Sissybones / Tim Steward & Kellie Lloyd

(With more to be announced)

 

Original owners Joc Curran and C Smith opened the the doors in December 1992 and the venue quickly became one of the focal points for the explosion of music, art and creativity in Brisbane in the 90s. Since then, bands too numerous to mention from all over the world have performed there, and literally hundreds of people have worked at The Zoo, many young artists, managers and musicians, all doing time on the bar, at the door, as a glassy or duty manager. Creating this breeding ground of creativity and strength of community has been the great achievement of The Zoo and is continuing into a new generation, helmed by new owner Pixie Weyand.

All of the artists performing at this event have long histories with The Zoo and have become stalwarts of the Brisbane music scene.

This event is also supporting two very worthwhile charities:

 

Support Act www.supportact.org.au

Support Act is a charity which helps Australian artists and music workers who are facing hardship due to illness, mental health problems, injury or some other crisis. Since 1997, they have helped to pay rent, keep the power on, repair instruments, provide petrol, buy school uniforms and rehouse a prized vinyl collection.

Feed Music www.feedmusic.org

Feed Music is a not for profit website that enables touring artists and bands to use their location while on the road to pinpoint cafes and restaurants situated in their passing town, in which they can eat and drink at for free, promoting a better mental wellbeing.

Grocons construction licence cancelled in Queensland "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Contributed by Jim Hayes

Melbourne based developer, Grocon, has just taken a hit in Queensland, with its licence suspended by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC), as an investigation into its finances continues.

It seems that the company has made a big loss on the Commonwealth Games Athletes Village and apparently, they are $16.7 million in the red over two other projects, valued at more than $1 billion. The QBCC is not satisfied that the business is viable enough to merit taking on more jobs.

The political establishment has reacted to this with a wall of silence. If it had been anyone else, especially unions in the industry, the resulting condemnations would have driven many of them  hoarse within hours. In this case, the apparent laryngitis, comes from the habit of harbouring this and some other similar construction companies as allies.

Construction companies donate significant amounts to political parties and have therefore established useful political links. Grocon has relied quit a lot on building its links through a war against construction unions., which has germinated into a cosy alliance with the federal and state governments. Canberras industry code brought benefits, in terms of legal assistance to push down wages and conditions, punish workers and unions acting on this and providing government contract rewards, through the building industry code measures that a that bars employers reaching better agreements with their own workforce.  Industry  safety conditions  and public safety have been  major casualties.

Grocon has a track record in cutting corners and this has more than once exacted a heavy price on others. In August this year VicRoads sued for damage caused in Elizabeth Street in Melbourne. In 2013 there was the Swanston Street wall collapse that killed three young pedestrians, over which it faced criminal charges.

These are two examples of cases of a long list of cases that have attracted a slap on the wrist at most.  Will it be the same for the Elizabeth Street incident? This was...

Senator Canavans ambitious plan for a State of North Queensland "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Senator Matt Canavan, a friend of mine from my Canberra days, is not wasting any time while he is temporarily out of the Cabinet. He is making plans for a new State of North Queensland. With his background as a Productivity Commission economist and as the former Minister for Northern Australia, Senator Canavan has the expertise and experience to come up with a credible and convincing plan for a new State of NQ. The Senator made some very interesting observations to the Townsville Bulletin last Friday:

Ive often said were big enough and strong enough and wealthy enough to represent ourselves, he said.

I reckon wed get more things going if we didnt have the handbrakes put on us by Brisbane and Canberra.

Senator Canavan said Tasmania had 12 senators with 500,000 people but North Queensland has only two and we have more than one million people.

I utterly reject any notion that we couldnt stand on our own two feet, he said. Our average per-person economic output in North Queensland is 30 per cent higher than in southern Queensland. All the money seems to get spent in Brisbane.

Senator Canavan is absolutely right about NQs higher economic output per capita (see chart below based on the most recent official estimates from Qld Treasury), although this is a result of the disproportionate contribution of mining to NQs economy. A lot of the income generated in NQ is earned by mining companies, and the bulk of it ends up leaving NQ, with a good proportion of it going overseas. The average NQ resident does not earn a higher income than the average SEQ resident. That said, the large economic contribution of mining (e.g. around two-thirds of North West Qlds economy, half of Mackays, and one-third of Fitzroys) means that a new State of NQ would earn healthy royalty revenues. Of course, as currently happens with Queensland, this healthy royalty revenue would count against NQ in the distribution of GST revenue.

While I concur with the Senator that a State of NQ would be economically viable, Id be careful about rushing into it. The set up costs would be large, and there may be trouble filling senior public service positions, given the vast majority of current Queensland public service SES positions are in Brisbane. Also, as Ive posted on previously, Im unsure NQ gets such a raw deal from Brisbane (see my post Is NQ under-funded relative to SEQ?). That said, I am v...

Adani posts weird video to fend off Carmichael criticism "GroovUs Feed Anews"

 

The following article by Michael Slezak and Nick Evershed (The Guardian 21 October 2017) is about Gautam Adani and his social media blitz to counter the massive opposition he is facing in Australia, over his controversial Carmichael coal mine in Queenslands Galilee Basin.

The Adani Group has promoted a bizarre video advertisement on Facebook, in which the Indian company responds to revelations its Australian coal operations face growing financial risks.

The video, targeting people in Melbourne, flashes up text on the screen, backed by fast and upbeat percussive music. It displays allegations, which are labelled as lies, followed by attempts to set the record straight. It also misspells Abbot point, its coal terminal.

The video was uploaded along with a long post that contains strange defenses of its operation, including the false claim that the entire allegations about the company are based on just one screenshot of random text.

The Facebook post had more than 580,000 views on the video statistics at the time of writing.

Tim Buckley, a financial analyst at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, made many of the allegations Adani was attempting to refute. Aired in an episode of ABCs Four Corners program, the institute claimed Adanis operations in Australia were unprofitable and required the Carmichael mine to bail them out.

Buckley described the video as a desperate attempt to try and counter some of the facts with loud music and flashing lights and a sign that the campaign against Adani in Australia is having an impact.

In one respect it shows that Adani is taking it seriously, Buckley said. The whole campaign in Australia is doing enormous damage to the social license to operate of Adani.

Facebook ads are sponsored posts that an advertiser has paid to push into the news feed of a specifically targeted pool of people. Unless the ad appears in your feed, there is no easy way to determine that a post has been sponsored. This makes it difficult to keep track of political advertising on the social network.

Facebook advertising is considered effective because it allows...

Exodus! "IndyWatch Feed Economics.au"

Census findings

Further interesting news from the 2016 Census has been released.

Some of it is rather open to interpretation. For example, there was lower employment in the younger age bracket, comprising 15-24 year olds.

But, on the other hand, 22 per cent of the population now have a degree or higher level of qualification. 

That's up +3.2 per cent from 2006-2011, replicating the same percentage increase as five years earlier, according to ID, the population experts.

Employment opportunities were certainly curtailed by the financial crisis and resources downturn, but we're also studying longer, so it's a somewhat mixed picture.

Exodus!

Similarly, there's quite a bit been said on the apparent mass exodus from Sydney.

Again, there's a strong element truth to this story.

But it's equally important not to take away the wrong visual image from this. 

The fact is, New South Wales always loses people interstate, and it always will, largely to Brisbane, south east Queensland, and even to Melbourne.

In reality, though, the numbers leaving the state on a net basis were dramatically lower in the 2011-2016 Census period than they were in the preceding five years.

And they were much, much lower than they were in the five years before that, with net interstate migration tracking at way under the half the rate of seen from 2001 to 2006.

Physicists send particles of light into the past, prove time travel is possible "GroovUs Feed Anews"


It is good to see us progressing on this problem.  I actually suspect that it will be solved easily and much sooner than anyone anticipates.

The reason i say all that is because i do have reports that could only be of the end of a temporal wormhole and likely come from the near future.  The physical nature conformed to my informed expectations and were not identified as such in the reports.  These were robust structures as well.

Add in the very real expanded presence of UFOs that appear to be popping in and out of time as well and the future is spending a lot of time watching us and gathering data without actually incurring paradox problems.

Real progress though will demand working with my Cloud Cosmology..

Physicists send particles of light into the past, prove time travel is possible



https://www.topbuzz.com/article/i6473528439419699722


Scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia, have used single particles of light (photons) to simulate quantum particles travelling through time. They showed that one photon can pass through a wormhole and then interact with its older self. Their findings were published in Nature Communications.


The source of this time travel conundrum comes from what are called "closed time-like curves"(CTC). CTCs are used to simulate extremely powerful gravitational fields, like the ones produced by a spinning black hole, and could, theoretically (based on Einstein's theory of general relativity), warp the fabric of existence so that space-time bends back on itself - thus creating a CTC, almost like a path that could be used to travel back in time.


According to Scientific American, many physicists find CTCs "abhorrent, because any macroscopic object traveling through one would inevitably create paradoxes where cause and effect break down." 

Others disagree with this assessment, however; in 1991, physicist David Deutsch showed that these paradoxes (created by CTCs) could be avoided at the quantum scale because of the weird behavior of these fundamental particles that make up what we call matter.


It's well known that at the quantum scale, these particles do not follow the rules that govern classical mechanics, but behave in strange and unexpected ways that really shouldn't even be possible.

People happy with Turnbull's NBN failure "IndyWatch Feed National"



The government can hide plenty from the masses, but it's difficult to hide this huge failure called the NBN (National Broadband Network).

It seems that whatever the people in government touch becomes a failure, where it is clear that they are incompetent and incapable of making decisions that are of benefit to the community.

With all these obvious failures the community seems very happy with the actions of the people in government.

How can one deduce that the people are happy?
- Because they are not protesting in the streets that they are unhappy.
Remember; Silence is acquiescence?

With the advent of a government tool (the interwebs) seeping into the hands of the plebs, any drunk sitting in his outhouse in the back of a Queensland property in the 'sticks', can have access to Australia's  founding legal document called the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (Imp) or the 'Constitution' for short.

These serfs will quote the words "Whereas the people" (from the Constitution) implying that they have some sort of 'authority' probably also referring to a quote somewhere along the line of "The people are the ultimate authority of the land", forgetting that it was the landowners who had a say in the shaping of the Constitution.

Maybe the serfs do have a say, as according to the people in government, the mass population 'voted' (in reality responded to a survey) supporting homosexual marriage, but that topic is covered elsewhere in the blog.

Currently Australia, apparently a first world country, has an internet speed slower than a second world country, Kazakhstan and just above Guam (third world?).

It's seems that the all powerful herd population will change the marriage law (based upon a survey) with regards to homosexuals (you know poofs and lezzos) marrying, but...

VIDEO: Multiple Residents Witness UFO Over Queensland, Australia "GroovUs Feed Anews"

By Joe Martino

Undeniably, UFOs and ETs have taken many minds by storm, and for good reason! This is a subject with the power to change our world as we know it in SO many ways and humanity is becoming increasingly more ready to explore this subject.

So what do UFO sightings do for this subject of conversation? They provide just that, a conversation. A chance to expand our minds and consciousness further as we imagine beyond our everyday accepted reality. As we explore the potential of what these objects and the intelligence that may control them means, we expand the way we think of ourselves and our world, effectively shifting our consciousness.

Given the mass consciousness shift were experiencingon this planet right now, this fits right in.

There have been a ton of new sightings over the past couple years, you can see them here, but this one is a bit older. Were going to look at it as its quite fascinating.

The UFO Sighting

It was a regular night in Queensland Australia when witness and filmer Jack Purcells mother pointed out the lights in the sky to him.

We were all just sitting out the front and my mum pointed to the sky and said look at that colourful plane flying over, Purcell said.

Then it came to a sudden stop and was just hovering there. So I ran inside and grabbed my video camera.

Purcell stated that when when the police tried to call it in with a police helicopter the unidentified object would turn its lights off and disappear.

It was really strange. I was quite skeptical of these things but it just blew my mind.

This is what Jack wrote about what he saw as he posted his video to YouTube: Ok so Im pretty sure Ive captured a UFO on camera. Early last night we saw flashing lights in the sky and I ran and got my camera to record it. The cops came straight away and told everyone that they had no idea what it was and they were going to call it in. When I ran inside to get my phone, everyone said that they saw another huge light twice its size zoom across the sky and disappear. At the end of this video, I slowed the footage down and stabilized it and you can clearly see that its a giant triangle with flashing lights. after I finished recording, it zipped down really quickly and vanished. so weird. sorry about the shaky footage, it was filmed on my handheld...

Cloud Nothings "GroovUs Feed Anews"

DRW Entertainment welcomes kings of cathartic and anthemic alt-punk, Cloud Nothings, back to Australia this coming February.

Fresh from a huge European and US tour with heavyweight rock-revival favourites, Japandroids, in-demand Cloud Nothings are returning for the first time since 2014, bringing their heavily-praised fourth studio album, Life Without Sound to Australian shores.

Indie-rock tunes and a punk as fuck performance, Cloud Nothings tore the Oxford Art Factory apart (2014) Blunt Mag

From its beginnings in Dylan Baldis basement in 2009 to include the trio of drummer Jayson Gerycz and bassist TJ Duke, Cloud Nothings are a band that continue to challenge the genre, while remaining nostalgic and loyal to their loud and brash basement roots.

Cloud Nothings pair fuzzy power-chord riffs with pop hooks on Rollingstone

In the bands most bold and unprecedented phase, a second guitarist, Chris Brown, has bulked up the bands lo-fi sound resulting in a remarkable expansion in the Cloud Nothings story and production.

The band seems to be hitting their stride ever more intently (each record could perhaps be assessed as the band hitting their stride, which speaks to the groups impressive consistency) Pitchfork 

If their new album recorded with producer John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead) has delved into a more cohesive chapter in the bands journey, their live shows still inspire some of the most fanatic praise of the bands raw and driving energy.

Recent international shows have undoubtedly confirmed Cloud Nothings as one of the most invigorating, magnetic, and yet enigmatic live bands, as fans get the sense that the bands metamorphosis is coming to its most important and career-defining stage.

Cloud Nothings have mastered the art of thrashing catharsis, pummeling out the anxieties of nostalgia and expectation with bloody verve. Pitchfork

FOAM

Recorded by Eileen Tierney
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Woolly Mammoth Alehouse, Brisbane, 15th September 2017

FOAM are a three-piece garage rock band from Perth, WA. Their heavy live performances deliver a filthy wall of sound reminiscent of the alternative rock boom of the late 80s/early 90s. Since the release of their first EP Sarpa Salpa in July of 2012, FOAM have released a total of four EPs, including a split with fellow Perth locals Puck.

During this time they have toured the country on numerous occasions playing festivals such as MATES Sydney,Big Day Out and Groovin The Moo, as well as headlining their own shows and supporting acts such as DZ Deathrays, Wax Witches and Sleepy Sun. In February of 2017, FOAM released their long awaited debut album Coping Mechanisms. The album was written in the basement beneath a toasted sandwich shop in Perth.

A Sydney car dealership is hosting a free Shannon Noll gig next week "GroovUs Feed Anews"

If you dont live in, or anywhere near Sydney, youd better get in your big black shiny car and drive there, because ol mate Shannon Noll is set to deliver one of the best free gigs of the year next week.

Yes, the 2003 Australian Idol contestant and renowned folk-hero, Shannon Noll is set to perform a free concert at the Suttons City car dealership in Sydney on November 4th, as he helps to celebrate the launch of their new dealerships.

Shannon Noll himself shared the event on Facebook earlier this evening, inviting fans to turn up for what is undoubtedly set to be one of the must-see events in Sydney on the day. Guys, Im performing a free concert on Saturday 4th Nov, Nollsie wrote. I will also be taking photos and meeting all fans after the show for a small donation with all funds supporting the Kids Cancer Project.

The Facebook event page points out all the finer details of the affair, noting that theyre set to have plenty of activities and food trucks on throughout the day, with bands playing during the event until Shannon Noll takes the stage at 6pm.

They also do make a point to note that youll need to RSVP, so if you dont want to miss out on grabbing a spot on the day, be sure to head to the page and register your interest.

Of course, Shannon Noll has had a pretty strange one this year, with the infamous strip club arrest in Adelaide, being arrested following a gig in Queensland, and then calling out the fuckin moron who threw a lit firecracker on stage during one of his shows. Needless to say, this free show should serve as a pretty relaxed affair for old Nollsie for a change.

Get yourself in the mood for the gig and check out Shannon Nolls classic track Drive, below.
