Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900 9V-SHD & Garuda Indonesia Boeing B777-300 PK-GIF Both Call into Rockhampton Airport in Support of Exercise Wallaby 2023

The uplift of personnel and equipment out of Rockhampton Airport as The Singapore Armed Forces Exercise Wallaby 2023 (XWB23) draws to a close has well and truly begun with a pair of heavy jet charter flights departing to Singapore late on Sunday 15 October.

Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-951 9V-SHD was photographed arriving into Rockhampton Airport direct from Singapore's Changi Airport as SIA8921.

After loading a full flight of personnel and equipment, it departed back to Changi but as SIA8928.

Then after dark, Garuda Indonesia Boeing B777-3U3(ER) PK-GIF made a one-off final visit, arriving from Jakarta as GIA7771 and then departing to Singapore but as GIA7770.

Of interest, it then appears to be positioning to Lombok and then flying a charter to Melbourne (Tullamarine) and then back to Jakarta.

It is believed that there is one final heavy jet passenger charter flight on Monday 16 October to again be operated by a Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900.
