After loading the two Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing CH-47SD Chinook helicopters yesterday, the Volga-Dnepr Antonov An-124-100 RA-82046 departed Rockhampton Airport around dawn on Monday 24 November. It departed to Cairns and Paya Lebar Air Base in Singapore as VDA2138.
To say farewell to one of the largest cargo transport aircraft in the world - and to highlight the end of the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2014 - local plane spotter 'IAD' has shared with us some of his images he captured early on Sunday 23 November as RA-82046 touched down at Rocky from Cairns.
Thanks to all the Rocky-based plane spotters for all your assistance with information and photos during Exercise Wallaby 2014!
Thanks to 'IAD' for sending through these fantastic photos!
