Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules Transport Aircraft A97-467 "Trojan 55" Pops into Rockhampton Airport

During the morning on Thursday 25 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules transport aircraft A97-467 was photographed departing Rockhampton Airport as "Trojan 55".

It looked to have earlier flown up from RAAF Base Amberley.

A97-467 departed Rockhampton Airport for the South and was later noted flying into Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport.

Meanwhile, earlier this week on Tuesday 23 July, fellow RAAF C-130J-30 Hercules A97-449 was heard to be possibly flying within the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) as "Odyssey 02".

Finally, on Wednesday 24 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-005 was noted departing Rockhampton Airport for good, following its deployment in support of Exercise Talisman Sabre 2019 (TS19).  It was heard to again fly as "Wallaby 20" and completed a low-level fly-over of Camp Rocky - the Australian Army Defence Support Unit (DSU) camp adjacent to Rockhampton Airport - before contnuing to RAAF Base Amberley.
