A Pair of RAAF C-17A Globemaster III Transport Aircraft - A41-208 & A41-209 - Spotted Completing Airwork at Bundaberg Airport

On Thursday 24 June, a pair of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft were noted and spotted completing airwork including touch-and-gos at Bundaberg Airport.

C-17A A41-209 as "Stallion 01" departed from RAAF Base Amberley and headed off the South-East Queensland coast before then flying up to Bundaberg Airport for at least one touch-and-go approach.  It then returned to Amberley at low level.

While A41-207 as "Stallion 02" did the same, flying out to sea off Brisbane and then up to Bundaberg Airport where it was spotted above and below completing a couple of touch-and-gos.

It appears that both Globemasters completed air-to-air refueling exercises off the coast of South-East Queensland with two RAAF Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft noted in the area - A39-002 as "Dragon 67" and A39-004 as "Dragon 65".

Sincere thanks to the local plane spotters for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos and videos!
