On Friday 31 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-003 was spotted completing a missed approach and low overshoot at Rockhampton Airport.
It appears that the Wedgetail flew up from RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle via a missed approach at the Sunshine Coast. After completing the airwork, A30-003 departed Rockhampton Airport and returned directly to Williamtown.
Of interest, A30-003 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Mitchel 05".
Sincere thanks to local photographer Steve V and local plane spotter Kayanne H for allowing us to share these great photos!
