      Quick synopsis is I'm getting this error back from the shell

      Wed Dec 28 12:39:01 uncaught exception: error {
      "$err" : "can't find special index: 2d for: { $and:[ { geometry.centroid:

      { $near: [ -37.817532, 144.967148 ],$maxDistance: 5.0 }

      },

      { identity.type_name: \"airport\" }

      ] }",
      "code" : 13038

      when using $near on a geospatial index in an $and query. Pulling the $near outside the $and gets the expected behavior.

      I can't see any caveats in the docs on geospatial queries or $and that indicates any restrictions here.
