Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules Transport Aircraft A97-467 Spotted at Rockhampton Airport This Time as "Trojan 24"

On Monday 29 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules transport aircraft A97-467 was photographed arriving into Rockhampton Airport once again flying as "Trojan 24".

The Herc has been around Rocky and the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) in recent days, flying between RAAF Base Richmond and Darwin.  On Monday, it looked to have flown into Rocky from Darwin and was later noted heading South and eventually flying into at RAAF Base Edinburgh in South Australia.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 30 July, A97-467 "Trojan 24" returned to Rockhampton Airport from Edinburgh and was later noted flying South, possibly to Richmond.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 29 July, RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-651 was noted departing Rockhampton Airport for Williamson Airfield within the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).  It was noted flying as "Beaufort 26".  A32-651 later departed Williamson Airfield and was noted departing to RAAF Base East Sale in Victoria.

It appears that A32-651 had arrived into Rocky late on Sunday 28 July from RAAF Base Richmind also as "Beaufort 26".
