Local plane spotter 'IAD' called into Rockhampton Airport on Thursday 28 August and was on hand to capture some photos of NH Industries MRH-90 helicopter A40-019.
The MRH-90 was ferrying north to Townsville where that type is replacing the Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk helicopter with operations with the Australian Army's 5th Aviation Regiment .
It was interesting to note that A40-019 wears Royal Australian Navy (RAN) titles. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Destria 19" - which is reportedly now being utilised by the 5th Aviation Regiment in Townsville.
Thanks to 'IAD' for capturing and send through these great photos!
