Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-001 Calls into Rockhampton Airport

On Tuesday 22 February, local plane spotters Kayanne H and Trevor H were on hand as Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-001 touched down at Rockhampton Airport.








This is the second time in as many weeks that a RAAF KC-30A has landed at Rocky on what looked to be a crew training flight.

A39-001 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Dragon 20" and after landing, taxied and stopped for a short time on  Taxiway Juliette while undergoing a crew change.







After a short time, A39-001 departed Rockhampton Airport for the South, heading towards the Gold Coast before flying on to Amberley.
