Impressive footage of Globemaster touch-and-go

Aircraft enthusiast Hayden Alexander has captured amazing footage of a Boeing C-17A Globemaster III as it flew close to shops and homes in Bundaberg.

Hayden said he noticed the plane was due to arrive at Bundaberg Airport on Friday, so he set up close by to get the ultimate shot.

The C-17A Globemaster III can be seen flying low over houses in Avoca before it performs a touch-and-go landing at Bundaberg Airport.

“(I) took that video on the 3rd of December just before 1pm,” Hayden said.

He was keeping his eyes peeled after checking the radar and trying to get into the right place at the right time. 

“Honestly the adrenaline running through me when I was taking that video as it flew over me was incredible.

“It flew over twice before heading back to RAAF Amberley.”

Born-and-bred in Bundaberg Hayden said he was definitely an aircraft enthusiast and he enjoyed spending time capturing videos and photos of the unique planes that travelled to the region.

Hayden was also able to capture a number of fantastic images when the RAAF C-17A Globemaster III was a main feature at the Bundaberg Airport for Exercise Talisman Sabre.

“I just love the thrill of being able to video rare visits to Bundy and getting up and close to the action,” Hayden said.

The gigantic plane has a wingspan of 51.75 metres and Hayden said it made two practice landings, before flying into the distance.

The C-17A is a large military transport aircraft that rapidly deploys troops, supplies, combat vehicles, heavy equipment and helicopters anywhere in the world.

It can also be used for aeromedical evacuation.

The impressive aircraft has also been a regular visitor to the Bundaberg Region, conducting touch and go training missions and fly overs in the past.
