Royal Air Force C17 Globemaster III ZZ173 arrived from Whenuapai, New Zealand at 17.35hrs as 'Ascot 6697'. The aircraft night stopped in Adelaide and departed the following day to Woomera, SA at 1230hrs then onto Perth, WA.

This was ZZ173's 1st visit to Adelaide, it is only the 3rd RAF C17 to visit Adelaide with sisterships ZZ171 and 172 making visits. ZZ172 was the last one to visit way back in July 2007.
