Ex Talisman Saber 2017 - United States Navy (USN) Boeing C-40A Clipper (B737-7AFC) 166693 Calls into Rockhampton Airport as "Convoy 7498"

Another nice arrival into Rockhampton Airport in association with joint Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 (TS17) was United States Navy (USN) Boeing C-40A Clipper (B737-7AFC) 166693 / 693.

It touched down late on Wednesday 5 July from Darwin as "Convoy 7498".

It was suggested that the C-40A might stay for the night, however a little later in the evening, 166693 was heard to depart for Townsville.

166693 / 693 is flown by the US Navy's Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 57 (VR-57) "Conquistadors" based at NAS North Island, San Diego, California.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Kayanne H and 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
