Ex Talisman Saber 2017 - Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) Boeing B757-200 NZ7571 Also Pops Back into Rockhampton Airport

Along with the Omni Air International B767 returning to Rocky - see Blog post below - also on Saturday 8 July, Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) Boeing B757-2K2 NZ7571 also returned to Rockhampton Airport for a visit.

Since making its last visit to Rocky on Thursday 6 July - see our Blog post HERE - the B757 has been noted at several different Airports in Australia and back in New Zealand and ferrying personnel and cargo in association with joint Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 (TS17).

It has been interesting to note too that during each flight, and again on its arrival into Rockhampton Airport on Saturday from the North, it used the flight number and call sign of "Kiwi 560".

After parking towards the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron, NZ7571 was unloaded and refuelled and then departed to the South again as "Kiwi 560".

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Daniel B for taking the time to capture and send through these awesome photos!
