RAAF Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-003 Makes Two Missed Approaches at Rockhampton Airport
On Tuesday 19 April, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-003 conducted not one, but two missed approaches at Rockhampton Airport, during a busy day of flying which started and finished at RAAF Base Amberley.
A39-003 initially flew North from Amberley and conducted the missed approach on Runway 15 at Rocky before continuing further North to Townsville. It then returned South from Townsville via another missed approach at Rocky before returning to Amberley.
The MRTT was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 24".
