Passing over the airport on one of several runs as part of fruit fly dropping flights over suburbs to the south of the airport. These flights were noted over several days in NE-SW flight paths. A fruit fly outbreak occurred in many suburbs around Adelaide and in 2021 was particularly severe, something which SA hadn't normally experienced. Sterile male fruit flies were dropped in a plan to help eradicate the problem. This view also shows the difference in appearance of the starboard side with the registration still clear.
