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!
