And After The Talisman Saber Open Day - The Three Helicopters Depart the Rockhampton Showgrounds

Local plane spotter Ben O was literally 'kicked out' of the Rockhampton Showgrounds after spending a great afternoon at the Exercise Talisman Saber Open Day on Sunday 14 July.  But before he left, he was treated to the wonderful sight of the three helicopters that were on display, departing back to Rockhampton Airport.

Australian Army Commonwealth CA-32 (Bell 206B/OH-58A) Kiowa helicopter A17-040.

Australian Army Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk Helicopter A25-225.

United States Navy (USN) Sikorsky HH-60H Seahawk helicopter 165257 / NW-311.

Also looking skyward during the afternoon, Ben captured a great image of one the two United States Marine Corps (USMC) Bell Boeing MV-22B Ospreys - 168027 / EP-06 - that visited Rockhampton on Sunday 14 July

Ben tells me he took over 900 photos at the Open Day!  Good stuff!  Thanks for sharing a small selection!
