RAAF Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules A97-441 Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport Late Tuesday

Late on Tuesday 26 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules A97-441 conducted a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.

The RAAF transport aircraft was noted flying to Rocky from the North and it continued to the South after completing the missed approach.

A97-441 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Mentor 05" which suggests that it is flown by the RAAF's 37 Squadron out of RAAF Base Richmond in New South Wales.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Kayanne H who was at the right place at the right time and for sending through this great photo in challenging late afternoon light!
