“SNOWBIRD 1” landing on runway 03 at 14:24, arriving from RAAF Curtin (Derby, WA). It departed at 14:24 to Darwin. Both flights would likely be charters for the Australian Government to transport asylum seekers.
From November to March each year, this aircraft operates on behalf of the Australian Government’s Australian Antarctic Division on a weekly service from the Division’s base in Hobart, Tasmania to an ice runway at Wilkins, Antarctica (hence the “Snowbird” radio callsign). Apart from this, the A319 is used for private and government charter flights.

VH-YFE Boeing 737-81D (MSN 39414/3623) of Virgin Australia (leased from AWAS), named “Sunshine Beach” at Perth Airport – Sat 24 August 2013.
Flight VA688 to Melbourne, being pushed back from Terminal 3 for engine start at 13:39.
Note the Schopf PowerPush Unit attached to the left main gear. The PowerPush is a remotely-controlled towbarless pushback tractor, which can be used for aircraft up to 100 metric tonnes. The pilots start number 2 (right) engine first whilst still parked at the bay. After about 15 seconds of spool up, the aircraft’s hydraulic pumps begin working, providing nosewheel steering. The pilots control the nose wheel and are instructed when to turn via the ground crew’s headset. Once the aircraft is in the correct position, the ground crew release the PowerPush, and reverse it away from the aircraft. By eliminating the need for a separate tractor driver, the PowerPush saves on labour and operating costs.
