Prior to control of the aircraft being transferred from the Brisbane Approach Controller to the Brisbane Tower Controller, the crew advised that they had the airfield in sight. The aircraft was instructed to make a visual approach to runway 01. When the aircraft crew contacted Brisbane Tower, they were given a clearance to land. However, the Tower Controller became concerned that the aircraft was aligned with the decommissioned runway 04 and not with runway 01. He asked the aircraft crew if they had the runway in sight, to which they replied that they did. The controller then instructed the aircraft to turn right, track towards the Gateway Bridge and to report when they had the approach lighting in sight. The aircraft crew reported the runway in sight and the aircraft was recleared to land on runway 01. The landing was completed without further incident. This incident was not the subject of an on-scene investigation.
