As usual, there will be a significant deployment and redeployment of personnel and equipment taking place before, during and after the Exercise through Rockhampton Airport. This will be highlighted by a visit by the giant Antonov AN-124 cargo jet with two inbound flights this year already being rumoured to be touching down as early as this weekend!
There will also be some heavy jet passenger charter flights with information suggesting that these could be supplemented by the first-time arrival into Rockhampton Airport of a Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Airbus A330MRTT (KC30).
Singapore ordered six A330MRTT aircraft in 2014 to replace their four venerable Boeing KC-135R Stratotankers, some of which were more than 50 years old.
