Despite the gloomy weather at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 15 August, local plane spotter 'IAD' managed to capture some great photos as Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-004 conducted a missed approach on Runway 15.
The MRTT - flying as "Dragon 02" - was noted to fly up from the South, and after completing the approach, it departed to Darwin via Emerald. It is assumed that A39-004 will continue its participation in the RAAF's Exercise Pitch Black in the Northern Territory.
Thanks to 'IAD' for the great photos - and thanks to the weather Gods who allowed a short break in the rain!
