The MRTT had originally departed from RAAF Base Amberley and flew all the way up to Townsville where it landed for a short time. A39-004 then flew back South via the airwork at Rockhampton Airport and then onwards back to Amberley.
A39-004 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 25".
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Scott H who was at the right place at the right time to capture these great photos!
