Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-209 Completes a Missed Approaches at Rockhampton and Emerald Airports

On Friday 7 May, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III A41-209 was spotted as it completed a missed approach and low overshoot at Rockhampton Airport.  It was heard to be flying as "Stallion 42".






It appears that the Globemaster flew up to Rocky from RAAF Base Amberley via some airwork off the South-East Queensland coast.  After completing the missed approach at Rockhampton Airport, A41-209 then headed inland where it appeared to complete another missed approach but at Emerald Airport. 

The Globemaster then returned to Amberley.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Kayanne H who was at the right place at the right time to capture these great photos!
