What was that big grey plane?

By tr0jan - 2 August 2012 5

I was driving over Commonwealth bridge yesterday at around 2pm and noticed a massive plane (possibly a jumbo?) flying northbound over the lake.

It was all grey, does anyone know what it was?

What’s Your opinion?

Dropping off the MIB to “negotiate” the US base in WA?

Nothing shows up here ( http://webtrak.bksv.com/cbr ) at that time, which would suggest it was Military or more likely Aliens or even Military Aliens, or maybe even Sharks with frikin Lasers!

Airbus A330.

RAAF Mid air refuel aircraft currently under development.

Guessing it was a RAAF C-17 Globemaster?

Our ones are all grey and look exactly like the USAF ones except for the RAAF markings on the side.

I saw it too, it was flying low over Mitchell/EPIC at about 1:50pm. It turned and went around the other side of Mt. Majura, presumably to land.

The lack of commercial markings makes me think it was an Air force plane
