On Monday 19 March, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-001 was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport as "Dragon 23".
Local plane spotters 'IAD' and Kayanne H were both on hand at different places to capture some great photos as the KC-30A climbed out after completing its airwork.
A39-001 looked to fly to Rocky from RAAF Base Amberley and after completing the approach, it continued to the North. It was later heard to return South to Amberley a little later in the day.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotters 'IAD' and Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send though these great photos!
