Exercise Wallaby 2019 - Air New Zealand Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner ZK-NZI Pops into Rockhampton Airport as Final Heavy Jet Charter Flights Start

The third and final 'wave' of heavy jet charter flights into Rockhampton Airport in support of the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2019 started late on Monday 4 November with Air New Zealand Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner ZK-NZI calling in.

The Dreamliner positioned across the ditch from Auckland empty as ANZ6001.  It was then loaded with a full flight of personnel and their bags before it later departed Rockhampton Airport direct to Singapore's Changi Airport as ANZ1941.

It is expected that ZK-NZI will then return to Rockhampton Airport during the afternoon on Tuesday 5 November and complete another flight to Singapore.

It should also be joined at Rocky by a Royal Brunei Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner which will also complete a passenger charter flight from Rockhampton Airport to Singapore.  This should wrap up the third and final 'wave' of troop charter flights for this year's instalment of Exercise Wallaby 2019.
