On Tuesday 23 September, local plane spotter Ben O again ventured to Rockhampton Airport and captured some fantastic photos of the 'resident' Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache and Boeing CH-47SD Chinook helicopters departing on sorties to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) during the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2014.
Meanwhile, he also shares some images of a couple of 'other' civilian helicopters to be seen Rocky over recent days including - last Thursday 18 September - Channel 9 (Queensland Television) Eurocopter AS.350B Squirrel helicopter VH-HTV, which was in town covering a police incident late last week.
And on Friday 19 September, Ben captured some great photos as the locally-based Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) (Australian Helicopters) Bell 412EP VH-EPR "Rescue 300" departed Rockhampton Airport on another med-evac mission.
Sincere thanks to Ben for capturing and allowing us to share these awesome images! Your continuing support is much appreciated! Thanks mate!
