An Awesome Tuesday at Rockhampton Airport as Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-951 9V-SHY Makes a Great Debut in Support of Exercise Wallaby 2022

On Tuesday 30 August, Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-951 9V-SHY made a stunning arrival into Rockhampton Airport, touching down direct from Singapore's Changi Airport as SIA8911.

This was a first ever visit of a Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 into Rocky.

9V-SHY taxied in and parked on Gate 6 on the Southern end of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron.

The visit by the A350 also marked the start of a series of heavy jet passenger charter flights in support of the Singapore Armed Forces Exercise Wallaby 2022 which has kicked off in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).

After unloading a full flight of personnel and bags, 9V-SHY departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Changi but as SIA8912.

Current schedules suggest that the A350 will return to Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 31 August and also be joined by an early morning visit by a Qantas Airways Airbus A330-300 also arriving from Changi.
