RAAF Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-005 Back Doing a Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport - And Hamilton Island Airport Too!

Captured by local plane spotter 'IAD' performing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport on Sunday 15 March was Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-005.

It was the second time in the last week that the MRTT had performed some airwork at Rocky.

On Sunday, A39-005 departed Amberley Air Base and headed to Rocky before flying further North and reportedly landing at Townsville.  From Townsville it performed a missed approach at Cairns and then Hamilton Island (that would have been a sight!) before returning to Amberley.

Thanks to 'IAD' for sending through these great photos!

    I see this eventually happened, just not on the Friday I was there.
