RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-206 Airwork Along the Fraser Coast and a Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft A41-206 was captured on approach and then performing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport on Thursday 17 September.

Local plane spotters 'IAD' and Kayanne H were at different parts of Rockhampton and captured these great photos of A41-206 which wears a White Ribbon in support of ‘White Ribbon Day’ - Australia's campaign to stop violence against women.

Flying as "Stallion 64", it was earlier heard flying low level around the Fraser Coast before heading Northbound over water towards Rockhampton.

It appears that A41-206 returned South to RAAF Base Amberley.

Also on Thursday 17 September, fellow RAAF C-17 A41-211 "Stallion 42" was also heard to be in the skies somewhere over CQ, while RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-372 was heard to also conduct airwork around the Fraser Coast but as "Hudson 22".

Thanks guys for taking the time to capture and send through these spectacular photos!
