It flew up from RAAF Base Amberley via an inland route before it turned towards St Lawrence and then Rocky.
After parking on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron, it was re-programmed and departed to Brisbane and then Amberley via a departure from Rocky towards the North!
A39-003 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 06".
At the time of writing, late on Thursday 7 February, A39-003 "Dragon 06" was back in CQ completing a similar flight however, this time it only completed a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Kayanne H and Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
