On Thursday 23 July, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Boeing B737-7ES / E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft A30-001 was photographed as it completed a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
A30-001 was flying as "Wedgetail 16" and reportedly flew up to Rocky direct from RAAF Base Williamtown near Newcastle in New South Wales. After completing its airwork at Rockhampton Airport, A30-001 returned South to complete another missed approach at the Sunshine Coast before then flying back direct to Williamtown.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
