First, RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft A41-209 as "Stallion 34" arrived into Rockhampton Airport from RAAF Base Amberley via airwork at Charleville Airport.
It parked on Taxiway Juliette for a crew change before then departing to Townsville via a missed approach at Mackay Airport.
Then RAAF Airbus A330-200 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-005 as "Dragon 41" also flew up to Rockhampton Airport from Amberley.
It was heard to be preparing to land but with the C-17 already on the ground, the crew decided to instead complete a missed approach and continue on to the Sunshine Coast where it completed more airwork. The KC-30A then returned to Amberley.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotters John L and Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
