The C-17 looked to depart RAAF Base Amberley and fly with RAAF Airbus A330-200 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-007 "Dragon 21" on a flight North up the Queensland Coast. Off the coast of Mackay, the KC-30 returned South to Amberley, while the C-17 continued North and completed a missed approach at Townsville.
A41-210 then returned South to Amberley via the airwork at Bundy. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Stallion 36".
