The KC-30 parked on Gate 6 at the southern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron. It came to Rocky to transport troops back south to Amberley.
After about an hour on the ground, A39-004 departed Rocky again as "Dragon 27".
Certainly a great sight and sound - and certainly a wonderful surprise weekend arrival into Rockhampton!
Thanks to 'IAD' and Kayanne H for sending through their awesome images!
