Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules A97-441 "Trojan 55" Pops into Rockhampton Airport

On Saturday 19 May, and for the second weekend in-a-row, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules transport aircraft A97-441 was spotted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from RAAF Base Richmond as "Trojan 55".

It is believed to have called into Rockhampton Airport to transport more military personnel and equipment in support of a land/sea joint military exercise which is currently underway in the nearby Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).

After a short time on the ground, A97-441 departed back to Richmond again as "Trojan 55".

Of interest, it appears the Herc then completed a return flight from Richmond to Melbourne (Avalon) and back!

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