The Pacific Air Express Australia Boeing B757-225(PCF) freighter VH-PQA returned to Rockhampton Airport on what appeared to be yet another training flight.  It arrived into Rocky from Brisbane as 'PCF52' / "Pacific 52" and parked on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron.  VH-PQA then returned to Brisbane as 'PCF53' / "Pacific 53".

UPDATE!  Making it a trifecta of visits for the week, on Friday 5 April, VH-PQA was again noted visiting Rockhampton Airport, again arriving from and later departing back to Brisbane.  On this occassion, it arrived into Rocky from Brisbane as 'PCF54' / "Pacific 54" and later returned to the capital but as 'PCF55' / "Pacific 55".

Meanwhile, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-207 "Stallion 30" also returned to Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 3 April, this time arriving from Townsville.  After parking for a short while, the Globemaster then departed to the Sunshine Coast where it completed some airwork before then heading to RAAF Base Amberley.
