Brisbane airport NEWS today

Today we had a few military movements buzz the airport with 2 new super hornets doing a missed approach on runway 19 .Gosh they are loud.NH90 helicopter movements were also evident.The airport again had runway changes with 19/14 in the morning and 01/14 in the afternoon.I noticed today that Tiger airways only appear to use bay 26 at the common user terminal as the 2nd aircraft had to await the first Tiger aircraft to move from that gate which took about 10 minutes.
The common user terminal which is the terminal Jetstar,Tiger,Skytrans,Alliance and Rex use will soon be expanded with a further 2 gates and a completion of the terminal to a complete circle.This will allow more cafes,more space for check in etc.Work should start soon and be completed by years end .
Today there was a missed approach with a Virgin Blue 737-700 unable to takeoff in time and this resulted in a Qantas 767-300 doing a published missed approach on 19.Bizjets seen today are VP-CKD G4 first visit
