Ex Talisman Saber 2017 – USAF C-17A Globemaster III Transport Aircraft 00-0185 Departs Rockhampton Airport as "Trek 51"

After making an early morning arrival into Rockhampton Airport the previous day, around lunch time on Sunday 23 July, United States Air Force (USAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III 00-0185 was spotted departing to Kadena Air Base in Japan again as "Trek 51".

As mentioned below, 00-0185 is flown by The 517th Airlift Squadron (517 AS) which is part of the 3rd Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska.

It's been a great couple of days with a lot of action around Rockhampton Airport - and with joint Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 (TS17) coming to a close, it would be expected that more large military transport aircraft and passenger aircraft should be calling into the beef capital to take equipment and personnel back to their home bases.

Sincere thanks to 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
