As we mentioned on our Facebook page, after the sun had set on Thursday 25 May, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-004 was spotted on the ground at Rockhampton Airport. The KC-30A landed at Rocky after departing RAAF Base Amberley and completing airwork the South-East Queensland coast.
After parking on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport aircraft parking apron and looking to complete a crew change, the KC-30 departed back to Amberley. A39-004 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 40".
Sincere thanks to local photographer Colleen H from Charlee Photography for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos which is certainly a departure from the norm for her, as Charlee Photography is actually one of the Rockhampton region's favourite newborn and maternity photography businesses. Colleen even admitted that capturing the KC-30A was a rarity for her as she normally specialises in capturing special events and precious moments.
