A Couple of RAAF and RAN Arrivals at CQ and Fraser Coast Airports Thursday

On Thursday 9 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-206 was noted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport as "Stallion 53".

It was believed to have flown up to Rocky from RAAF Base Amberley.  After completing the missed approach, it then flew West and completed airwork at Emerald and Taroom before returning to Amberley.

Meanwhile also on Thursday 9 June, RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-439 was noted arriving into Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport as "Envoy 14".  It looked to fly in from Canberra.

And finally, it is believed that a Royal Australian Navy (RAN) NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter called into Bundaberg Airport on Thursday 9 June as "Poseidon 01".  It departed a little while later to Oakey.
