The aircraft refuelled during the stopover, and soon after departed for Brisbane.
The Rockhampton Regional Council, who captured some great photos of the jumbo visitor, says the landing of a B747-400 jet in the central Queensland city yesterday shows the capabilities of the local airport. A Council spokesperson said it is a testament to the quality of Rockhampton's facilities and the airport passed the test with flying colours.
The next test will be in September when the Singapore Armed Forces come to Rockhampton for their annual Exercise Wallaby where, according to Council, some 20 chartered B747s will land at Rockhampton Airport during the Exercise.
