Early on Friday 2 August, Atlas Air Boeing B747-446 N464MC also visited Rockhampton Airport, touching down direct from Kadena Air Base in Japan as GTI8649.
The Jumbo parked on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron and was closed up and looked to be staying for most of the day.
During the early evening on Friday, N464MC was refuelled and some passengers boarded before it departed to RAAF Base Amberley again as GTI8649.
At the time of writing, it is due to make a midnight departure to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (Honolulu), Hawaii, but as GTI8650.
Of interest, N464MC has had a busy couple of days, also visiting Townsville and Cairns on Thursday 1 August, arriving from Honolulu, Hawaii and departing to Kadena.
Sincere thanks to the local plane spotter Jaxson W for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
