RAAF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-206 Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport Sunday!

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-206 was made a rare weekend appearance in the skies over Rocky on Sunday 5 June completing an overfly followed by missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.

Local plane spotter Kayanne H captured a couple of quick photos as the giant RAAF transport aircraft initally overflew Rockhampton before returning to complete a missed approach on Rockhampton Airport's Runway 15.

Flying as "Stallion 45", A41-206 looked to fly up from RAAF Base Amberley, and after completing its airwork, looked to depart to the North.

It's also good to see that A41-206 still wears a white ribbon on its fuselage in support of ‘White Ribbon Day’ - Australia's campaign to stop violence against women.

Thanks Kayanne!
