One of the largest aircraft in the world has touched down at Rockhampton Airport in the lead-up to Exercise Wallaby.

The Antonov 124-100 landed at 5am today, bringing with it heavy military equipment that will be used in the exercise, run out of Shoalwater Bay military training ground from August 31.

Rockhampton Regional Council airport committee chair Neil Fisher said the renowned aircraft was contracted to the Singaporean Armed Forces and would be at the Rockhampton Airport until tomorrow morning and return again on Friday.

“The Rockhampton Airport will become an even busier hive of activity over the coming weeks – with more than 5000 Singaporean defence personnel set to arrive for the training exercise and multiple large freight and military aircrafts such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, C-130 and CH-47 Chinook on the tarmac," Cr Fisher said.

“The Antonov is one of the largest planes we have land at the Rockhampton Airport and it’s definitely a plane enthusiast's dream - being one of only eight operating in the military in the world."

Cr Fisher said the activity highlighted how well-equipped the local airport was.

“Every year, our region welcomes our international military visitors and our airport supports their elite aircraft and equipment, proving time and time again that we definitely have the capacity to manage both domestic and freight aircraft,” he said.

A sod-turning ceremony has officially launched construction on the $250 million North Queensland Stadium.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said breaking ground was an exciting time for the Townsville community as it would unlock hundreds of jobs and flow-on benefits to the region.

“The managing contractor Watpac has worked hard to reach this significant milestone to ensure the project remains on track to deliver the stadium on time for the 2020 NRL season,” she said.

“Best of all, today we are seeing a further boost to local jobs with the award of the civil earthworks and roadworks trade package being award to local Townsville company Mendi Constructions."

Trade packages awarded to local companies to date include temporary fencing (TFH Hire Services), shade cloth provision (Advantage Signs), project surveying (Brazier Motti), dilapidation surveying (Brazier Motti) and demolition (Markwell Demolitions).

Ms Palaszczuk said one of the government’s key objectives had been to ensure the project delivers real benefits to local business and created local jobs.

“Supporting our objective is Watpac’s plan to ensure at least 80 percent of the hours spent building the stadium will be done by locals, and at least 80 per cent of the project's value being spent on local subcontractors and suppliers," she said.

“With the civil earthworks and roadworks trade package being the biggest of the early works trade packages, it is great to see this work going to a local Townsville-owned and operated business.”

The North Queensland Stadium is a joint project of the Queensland Government ($140 million), the Australian Government ($100 million), and Townsville City Council and is supported by both the National Rugby League and the North Queensland Cowboys ($10 million). The North Queensland Stadium forms part of the Townsville City Deal signed in 2016.
