Local plane spotter Kayanne H was also on hand at Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 29 July as Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-005 called in from RAAF Base Amberley as "Dragon 22".
The KC-30 came to Rocky to transport local personnel and their bags home following the completion of Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 (TS17). It parked on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport apron.
It later departed to Adelaide Airport before it eventually returned to Amberley later in the day.
Sincere thanks again to Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
