Another Australian Army Tiger ARH Helicopter Calls into Rockhampton Airport Heading North as "Sniper 11"

On Monday 21 March, another Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter was noted calling into Rockhampton Airport for fuel.

Like the two Tigers that called in the previous day - see Blog Post HERE - this single Tiger flew into Rocky from the South and later departed North to Townsville.

Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain the serial number of the Tiger, but local spotters did hear that it was using the radio callsign of "Sniper 11".

Meanwhile, later on Monday 21 March, yet another Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air was noted conducting a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.  On this occasion, A32-349 was noted overhead Rocky after flying North from the Gold Coast.  It departed further North to Townsville.  The Super King Air was heard using the radio callsign of "Hudson 7".
