RAAF Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet A44-215 Spotted Overhead Maryborough and Rockhampton on Anzac Day

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet A44-215 highlighted a great day of fly-overs throughout Central Queensland during commemorations on Monday 25 April - ANZAC Day.

The Super Hornet was heard flying North from RAAF Base Amberley as "Falcon 41" and was initially spotted over Maryborough at 500 feet by local photographer and part time plane spotter Rowena B, who has again this year allowed us to share her stunning photos.

"Falcon 41" was then heard to fly further North via Mount Larcom and on to Rockhampton where local plane spotter Ash B also captured A44-215 as it overflew Rocky.

Of interest, fellow Super Hornets (or "Rhinos") A44-202 and A44-204 were spotted overflying the Brisbane Anzac Day parade and commemorations, and featured on the state-wide television coverage.

Sincere thanks to Rowena and Ash for capturing their stunning photos and allow us to share them with you all!
