The Nine RoKAF Black Eagles KAI T-50B Jets - Plus C-130 Hercules Transport Aircraft - All Depart Rockhampton Airport for Darwin and then Home to South Korea

As expected, on Saturday 11 March, the visiting deployment of The Republic of Korea (South Korea) Air Force (RoKAF) "Black Eagles" aerobatic team departed Rockhampton Airport for Darwin via Cairns and RAAF Base Tindal at Katherine, as they continued their journey home to South Korea from Avalon Airport where they participated at the recently completed Australian International Airshow.

As with their arrival the previous day, the Black Eagles' nine KAI T-50B trainers departed in spectacular fashion, flying in three-ship formations as "Bravo Echo 01/04/07".

A little later, the RoKAF Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules 45-750 as "Argo 102" also departed Rockhampton Airport but directly to Tindal before continuing to Darwin.

And C-130H-30 Hercules 55-030 "Argo 103" also departed Rockhampton Airport but for Darwin.

Of interest, the third RoKAF Lockheed C1-30J-30 Hercules 45-747 "Argo 101" was heard to also (possibly) fly into Darwin up via inland Queensland.

Sincere thanks to the local plane spotters for providing us with such a great coverage of the arrival of these awesome visitors to the region!
