RAAF C-17 Globemaster A41-211 and Beech Super King Air A32-439 in the air over Rockhampton Airport Tuesday

A couple of interesting Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) aircraft were spotted performing airwork in the skies above Rockhampton Airport on Tuesday 1 September.

It is believed that RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-211 conducted a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport as "Stallion 31".  It was seen departing to the South.

A little later, local plane spotter Kayanne H captured a couple of great photos as RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-439 conducted three touch-and-go's at Rockhampton Airport.

A32-439 - flying as "Dingo 57" - initially departed from Townsville and conducted some airwork at Mackay Airport before heading to Rocky.  After completing its airwork at Rockhampton, "Dingo 57" departed South to RAAF Base Amberley.

UPDATE!  A32-439 was also noted departing Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport for Townsville as "Dingo 57" on Monday 31 August.

Thanks Kayanne!
