Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail A30-005 Completes Airwork at Rockhampton Airport

On Wednesday 2 September, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-005 was photographed as it completed a pair of missed approaches at Rockhampton Airport.

It was flying as "Wedgetail 10" and came up from RAAF Base Williamtown to Rocky before it returned there via another missed approach at RAAF Base Amberley.

Meanwhile, a little earlier also on Wednesday 2 September, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-036 "Destrier 103" was noted passing through Rockhampton Airport.  It arrived from Townsville and later departed to Brisbane via a missed approach at Bundaberg Airport.

And fellow Australian Army MRH-90 helicopter A40-011 was noted flying around Fraser Island while on a flight out of and back to Oakey as "Saxon 38".

Finally, on Tuesday 1 September, RAAF Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-006 was noted flying around Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport on training flights out of Amberley as "Wallaby 17".

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Michael M for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
