Commercial, Military and General Aviation Pictures from Rockhampton Airport Monday

Rockhampton Airport played host to a wide variety of aircraft and operators on Monday 27 June.

Both Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) transports - Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-207 and Lockheed C-130H A97-009 - returned during the day. The following pictures show the Globemaster arriving and departing as "Stallion 74".

On the commercial scene, Alliance Airlines Fokker F-100 VH-XWM - which still wears a plain white colour scheme - was operating flights on behalf of QantasLink.

Virgin Australia Embraer ERJ-190s VH-ZPH and VH-ZPE were also noted flying between Brisbane and Rockhampton.

During the morning, the Singapore Flying College Cessna 510 Citation Mustang VH-SQY, operated in the Rockhampton Airport cricuit area, flying touch-and-gos and missed approaches, as it completed its training flight from the Sunshine Coast. It used the callsign "Raffles 22".

Elsewhere at the Airport, Fugro Spatial Solutions' Cessna 206 VH-KPG, is pictured below parked on the General Aviation ramp. Local spotters report that this and other Fugro aircraft have been recently conducting several aerial survey flights out of Rockhampton.
