Inside the Archive: KC-30A

The KC-30A Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) serves as an air-to-air refuelling aircraft that also provides the RAAF with strategic airlift capabilities. It was first flown by RAAF in September 2011.

The RAAF currently has six KC-30A aircraft operated by No.33 Squadron, based at Amberley. Since 2014, one additional KC-30A has been deployed in the Middle East under Operation Okra.

    I wasn’t aware of the fact that the KC-30A MRTT is a substantially modified, military derivative, of an Airbus A330-200 airliner!!
    They have been a great asset to the RAAF since December 2004 in several areas of operation.

    #6 – RAF Voyager not an RAAF KC-30A
    #7 – nice shot of 707 & Hawk, but surely there are enough KC-30A shots available that fillers are not required

    This archive list is an absolutely remarkable initiative for the centenary of the RAAF. Sincere congratulations are in order.
