On Thursday 15 April, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft A41-206 was spotted as it completed a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport. It was flying as "Stallion 37" and looked to fly up from RAAF Base Amberley and depart Rocky for Cairns where it completed another missed approach. A41-206 then landed at Townsville for the night.
As shown A41-206 still wears additional decals to commemorate the RAAF's 100th anniversary.
Earlier on Thursday 15 April, A41-206, also as "Stallion 37" completed a flight out of and back to Amberley via airwork overhead and missed approach at Charleville Airport.
It was joined by fellow RAAF C-17A Globemaster III A41-208 as "Stallion 40" which also completed a flight out of and back to Amberley via airwork and a missed approach at Charleville Airport.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
