Brand New RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-212 Does a Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport Monday

The run of large Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) transport aircraft conducting airwork around Central Queensland - and specifically Rockhampton - continued in spectacular fashion on Monday 18 January as brand new RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-212 was spotted conducting a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.  It was using the radio callsign of "Stallion 26" and appeared to fly up from RAAF Base Amberley and return South via overhead Emerald.

A41-212 was delivered the RAAF at Amberley in early November and is the newest member of RAAF fleet of eight C-17s.

Thanks Kayanne for capturing these great photos as the massive C-17 approached Rocky!
