First Visit of an Australian Army Boeing CH-47F ‘Foxtrot’ Chinook Helicopter A15-304 at Rockhampton Airport Monday

New Australian Army Boeing CH-47F ‘Foxtrot’ Chinook helicopter A15-304 made what I believe to be the type's first visit into Rockhampton Airport on Monday 14 March as "Brahman 304".

It appears that the Chinook flew South from Townsville and later departed South where local plane spotter Kayanne H captured these two great photos.

Of interest, more of the Army's CH-47F 'Foxtrot' and older CH-47D Chinook helicopters have been spotted flying around the skies of Darwin, as they, and some of the Army's Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopters participate in an exercise named 'Vigilant Scimitar'.
