A Pair of Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopters - A15-304 & A15-307 - at Rockhampton Airport Saturday

A nice early surprise on Saturday 14 May with a pair of Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters arriving into Rockhampton Airport from the North using the unique radio callsign of "Fatboy".  They were identified as A15-304 and A15-307.

After taking on fuel - and lunch for the personnel - they both departed to RAAF Base Amberley flying via Gladstone.

Local plane spotter Trevor H captured this quick photo as they departed heading South.

Thanks Trevor!
