The two PC-21s were identified as A54-048 & A54-049 and flew together as "Mayhem".
Both aircraft parked on the Rockhampton Airport General Aviation (GA) Apron. It seems that they have deployed to Rockhampton Airport in support of the RAAF's Exercise Rogue Ambush 2022 which is currently underway, with some flying activities taking place within the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).
Meanwhile, also on Monday 28 November, a seventh Air Affairs (Australia) LearJet was noted visiting Rockhampton Airport during the Exercise.
On this occasion, it was LearJet 36A VH-SLF as "Ajax 04" which flew into Rockhampton Airport from HMAS Albartross at Nowra. It then later departed to Darwin where it joins fellow Air Affairs LearJet 35A VH-SLE which departed from Rockhampton Airport last Friday.
While currently deployed LearJet 35A's VH-SLD and VH-LFA completed a sortie in support of the Exercise, flying out of and back to Rockhampton Airport as "Fencer".
Finally, also on Monday 28 November, heard up in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) were three flights of RAAF Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II fighter aircraft as "Hunter", "Hawkeye" and "Hipshot", which all completed sorties out of and back to RAAF Base Amberley.
RAAF Airbus A330-200 / KC-30A Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) A39-001 as "Dragon 14" was also noted in the area providing air-to-air refuelling support to the F-35A's.
And the deployed Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Search and Rescue (CHC Helicopters Australia / Lloyd Helicopters) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-SYJ "Choppa 22" again looked to complete some locally based airwork, flying out of and back to Rockhampton Airport.
