Polet Aviakompania (Polet Airlines) Antonov AN-124 RA-82068 Touches Down at Rockhampton Airport Monday

Polet Aviakompania (Polet Airlines) Antonov AN-124-100 RA-82068 made a spectacular arrival at a sun-drenched Rockhampton Airport on Monday 26 November.  It arrived as "POT4789" direct from Chennai, India, and touched down on Runway 15 at around 10.40am.  There was a small crowd of spectators to watch the Antonov's arrival.

Parked on Gate 6 at Rockhampton, the Antonov was then opened, and the five Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache helicopters loaded in preparation for their delivery home to Singapore.  The Apaches have been in Rockhampton to take part in the Singapore Armed Forces Military Exercise Wallaby 2012 that has been held in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) over the last two months.

The word around the Airport during the day was that the Antonov was expected to depart during the early morning of Tuesday 27 November.

Thanks to the Rockhampton Airport Plane Spotters for the photos sent thus far!
