Meanwhile Australian Army Tiger ARH Helicopters Perform Circuits and Depart Rockhampton Airport

It appears that at the time of writing, the two Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopters that called into Rockhampton Airport on Tuesday 21 July have, or were due to depart, to different parts of the country.

But not before one Tiger – A38-022 – was captured by local plane spotter ‘IAD’ flying circuits at Rockhampton Airport on Thursday 23 July.

The Tiger was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Marlin 81"

Later on Thursday, one of the Tigers – presumably A38-022 – was heard to depart to Oakey Army Base as "Havoc 11".

At the time of writing, early on Friday 24 July, the other Tiger that remained at Rockhampton Airport - possibly A38-013 - looked to be being prepared for a departure.

UPDATE!  "Sniper 11" was heard to depart Rockhampton Airport for Longreach and then further ports to Darwin on Friday 24 July.
