On Wednesday 4 December, RAAF Lockheed C-130J transport aircraft A97-442 was spotted on approach into Rockhampton flying as "Mambo 32". "Mambo 33" and "Mambo 34" were also heard to be making approaches into Rockhampton late on Wednesday evening.
Later, another RAAF C-17, as well as more RAAF C-130s were heard to be approaching Rockhampton Airport, with C-17 A41-209 "Stallion 20" and C-130 A97-442 again as "Mambo 32".
It is believed the Hercs are based in Townsville where a RAAF Exercise is currently underway.
Thanks to the Rocky spotters for all their help this week!
