Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan Transport Aircraft A34-008 "Wallaby 74" Spotted at Bundaberg Airport

On Sunday 23 October, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-008 was spotted on the ground at Bundaberg Airport.

The Spartan was returning from Cairns to RAAF Base Amberley but reportedly suffered radar failure, and due to the weather in the South, it diverted to Bundaberg Airport.

After around an hour on the ground, A34-008 "Wallaby 74" departed Bundaberg Airport for Amberley.

Of interest, A34-008 "Wallaby 74" was in Cairns on Saturday 22 October giving the local Royal Australian Air Force Cadettes some 'air experience' on local flights out of and back to Cairns out over the Great Barrier Reef.

Nice one!
