Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-211 Completes Missed Approach at Rockhampton Airport - Plus More!

On Thursday 18 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-211 was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.

The C-17 initially departed RAAF Base Amberley and flew up to Rocky where it completed the missed approach.  It then continued up to Townsville where it completed another missed approach before it then returned to Amberley.

A41-211 was noted flying as "Stallion 54".

Meanwhile, the two RAAF Beech B350 Super King Airs that popped into CQ Airports earlier in the week returned to the region, arriving into Mackay Airport also on Thursday 18 June.

A32-671 "Hudson 05/07" arrived into Mackay Airport from Darwin via Mount Isa.  While A32-651 "Huson 08/09" arrived into Mackay Airport from Mount Isa after it started the day at Cairns.  It also completed a missed approach at Moranbah Airport while heading to Mackay Airport.

Finally, also on Thursday 18 June, fellow RAAF Super King Air A32-439 "Beaufort 24" departed Roma Airport for RAAF Base East Sale in Victoria.  It had arrived at Roma Airport from Canberra the previous day and looked to complete a flight to Cunnamulla and back to Roma early on Thursday.
