RAAF Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail A30-003 Missed Approaches at Rockhampton and Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airports

On Tuesday 27 February, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-003 was spotted on approach and then on climb out after completing a missed approach and low overshoot at Rockhampton Airport.

It appears that the Wedgetail had earlier flown North from RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle.

After completing its airwork at Rocky, A30-003 flew South and completed more airwork including another missed approach at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport. 

After completing its airwork at Hervey Bay, the Wedgetail returned to Williamtown.

A30-003 was noted to be using the radio callsign of "Wedgetail 07".

Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Scott H and Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos of the Wedgetail at Rockhampton Airport!
