Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) B737 Wedgetail A30-004 Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport Friday

On Friday 10 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-004 was captured performing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport by local plane spotter 'IAD'.

It was flying as "Mitchell 15" and reportedly flew South from Townsville to complete the approach at Rocky.

A30-004 was then noted returning North following the airwork.

I believe that the Wedgetail is currently based out of Townsville and is participating in the RAAF's Exercise High Sierra which is currently underway during the month of June around Townsville.

Sincere thanks to 'IAD' for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
