RAAF King Air A32-670 & KC-30 A39-005 - Along with Army Chinook A15-106 - At Rockhampton Airport also on Tuesday
The busy day at Rockhampton Airport on Tuesday 14 April continued with Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air A32-670 calling in from the South.
Local plane spotter 'IAD' was on hand to capture a couple of quick snaps of its departure to RAAF Base Amberley. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dingo 11".
Meanwhile, 'IAD' also captured a quick snap of another great visitor to Rocky in the form of Australian Army Boeing CH-47D Chinook helicopter A15-106.
It arrived from the North and after a short time on the ground, it departed to the South - tracking to Noosa - using the radio callsign of "Brahman 106".
Reports suggest that the Chinook may then move onto Melbourne to be retired.
Finally, RAAF Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-005 was spotted conducting a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
It flew up from the South and looked to continue to the North. A39-005 was noted to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 11".
Sincere thanks to 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
