Late on Thursday 16 February, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-004 touched down at Rockhampton Airport.
The KC-30 made a rare landing at Rocky after flying North from RAAF Base Amberley via a period of airwork out-to-sea off Brisbane.
A39-004 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 07".
After taxiing back to the end of the runway, A39-004 made a spectacular departure back to Amberley - be sure to turn up the sound on the video!
Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Trevor H and Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos and video!
