Local plane spotter 'IAD' was also on hand on Friday 27 September as Polet Aviakompania (Polet Airlines) Antonov AN-124-100 RA-82068 arrived into Rockhampton Airport as "POT4754" direct from Paya Lebar Airbase in Singapore.
It was the second time during the week that the massive Russian freighter had visited Rockhampton, and on both occasions, it was carrying Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) helicopters that will be utilised during the upcoming Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2013.
RA-82068 evenutally departed Rockhampton Airport late on Friday 27 September for U-Tapao-Pattaya International Airport in Thailand.
Big thanks to 'IAD' for capturing these fantastic images of the Polet Antonov - if you missed the visit of the mighty aircraft this week, it is expected that it will return to Rockhampton in early December the end of Exercise Wallaby.
