RAAF plane over G20 in Brisbane. At the time captured, the plane had been around the loop 22 times (counted on max zoom in).

Training or more likely, Testing. :) This plane may be equipped with testing equipment used to check airport instrument facilities.

I have a similar shot taken in Denmark, where one or more crews trained touch and go for several hours.

12 clockwise approaches and next 23 counterclockwise ditto. It took almost all day. :)
