Another day, another visit at Rockhampton Airport by a RAAF KC-30A MRTT!!
On Thursday 9 January, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-005 was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
As with the previous visits this week, the KC-30A flew North from RAAF Base Amberley and landed at Townsville for a short period of time before flying back to Amberley via a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport. A39-005 also flew yet again as "Dragon 10".
A39-005 actually landed at Rockhampton Airport for a short time on Tuesday 7 January and sistership A39-007 completed a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport after dark on Wednesday 8 January. Both aircraft used the radio callsign of "Dragon 10" also on these flights - see Blog posts below!
