The Sun Was Out and The Hawks Were Flying at Rockhampton Airport on Friday

Finally, the sun was out throughout Central Queensland, and plane spotters were able to finally step outside and catch up with the machines that they love to watch and photograph!

At Rockhampton Airport on Friday 29 June, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Brittish Aerospace (BAe) Hawk 127 jets were flying, and Ben O was there to catch some of the action!

There are reportedly four Hawks at Rockhampton Airport again, although one of the serials seems to be different from one of the visiting aircraft from a fortnight ago.

Ben's fantastic photos show Hawks A27-14 taking off and later returning on a solo flight.

And then later A27-02 and A27-20 taking off together.

The fourth Hawk is reportedly A27-28, which has replaced A27-09, which was noted departed Friday 29 June to the South.

One other interesting movement at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 29 June, was the arrival and departure of an Australian Army marked MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter. The chopper marked A40-016 is shown departing Rockhampton Airport.

Looks like a great day!
