First RAAF Visitor to CQ for 2017 with Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail A30-003 Completing a Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport
It appears that we've had the first military visitor into Central Queensland in 2017 with Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-003 noted completing a missed approach onto Runway 33 at Rockhampton Airport on Friday 13 January.

It appears that A30-003 flew up from the South and returned down there after its airwork. A30-003 was noted to be using the radio callsign of "Wedgetail 07".
