On Thursday 17 January, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-005 was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
A30-005 was flying as "Mitchell 03" and reportedly flew up to Rocky from RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle in New South Wales. After completing its airwork at Rockhampton Airport, A30-005 was noted flying back towards the South and looked to return to Williamtown.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter 'IAD' who was at the right place at the right time to capture these great photos!
