On Tuesday 17 March, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-212 was noted completing a touch-and-go at Bundaberg Airport.
It looked to fly up from RAAF Base Amberley to complete the touch-and-go and then flew back to the South. A41-212 was heard to be flying as "Stallion 71".
Of interest, when it returned South, it was heard to meet up with RAAF Airbus A330-200 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-002 "Dragon 60" to complete refuelling training off the coast of Brisbane before it then eventually landed back at Amberley.
The KC-30A A39-002 "Dragon 60" had earlier also departed Amberley and flew North to provide airborne refuelling support for the two latest RAAF Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft which were on delivery to their new base at RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle.
They were heard refuelling in the air above Yeppoon while on their journey South.
