They quite often operate IFR for the first few runs of the day at BRS and TQY. If they're operating below FL125 then clearance isn't required as it's all in G.

"They were dropping through solid 8/8’s which is as far as I know legit" would indicate Squawk wasn't questioning that.

One was dropping from FL140 at Barwon Heads so required a clearance to climb, drop & descend. The other was dropping from FL120 and FL110 at Torquay so no clearance required as it was all OCTA. They...

Just the one 757 on the Australian register. It's treated as a heavy when leading and a medium when following - so 5 miles needed with the medium following it.

The controller who said "clearance not available" was the "C" controller - it's a totally separate issue to what the "D" controller did.
