Late in the afternoon on Tuesday 30 May, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-005 touched down at Rockhampton Airport from RAAF Base Amberley as "Dragon 45".
Local plane spotter Kayanne H popped out to Rockhampton Airport and captured some great photos as the KC-30A touched down on Runway 15 and parked on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the parking apron. It looked to keep its engines running and and seemingly completing a crew swap inside the aircraft.
A short time later, A39-005 departed to Townsville.
It was later noted returning to Amberley.
Sincere thanks to Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos and video!
