JAMES and Erica Packer flew out of Sydney Airport together this morning to attend the funeral of billionaire Paul Ramsay in Bowral.
The pair boarded a helicopter with a small entourage, including Channel 7 boss Kerry Stokes, just before 10am for the trip to Bowral.
Healthcare billionaire Ramsay, who died last week, left most of his $3.7 billion fortune to charity.
It is the first time the pair have spotted together in Australia since their split last September.
Packer arrived in a private jet and entered the ExecuJet hanger alone at 9.40am.
He was still sporting his now-infamous black eye from his fight with Channel 9 boss David Gyngell outside his $20 million Bondi mansion on Sunday.
Ten minutes later airport staff drove a van slowly in front of the group to avoid prying eyes as they boarded.
Stokes walked ahead of the van followed by Packer with his ex-wife following behind.
Mrs Packer left her Vaucluse mansion just after 9am in a taxi which sped off down Vaucluse Rd.
The Packers, who share three children, led a lengthy roll call of Australia’s business, social, sporting and political elite who today gathered to farewell the health baron.
