The series of heavy jet charters into Rockhampton Airport in support of the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2014 has commenced on Wednesday 17 September with Singapore Airlines Boeing B777-200 9V-SVK touching down direct from Singapore's Changi Airport as SIA8931.
Local plane spotters Ash B and 'IAD' were on hand, and captured some lovely images of the B777 which is a familiar visitor to Rocky having operated some these charters last year.
After a couple of hours on the ground, 9V-SVK departed back to Singapore as SIA8932.
At the time of writing, it looks like fellow Singapore Airlines B777-200 VH-SRJ will arrive into Rockhampton again later on Thursday 18 September. In fact information suggests that there will be two Singapore Airlines B777's flying into Rockhampton later tonight.
Sincere thanks to Ash and 'IAD' for allowing us to share their great photos!
