Australian Army Boeing CH-47D Chinook Helicopter A15-201 Calls into Mackay and Gladstone Airports on Final Flight before Retirement


Making a surprise and certainly most welcome visit into both Mackay and Gladstone Airports on Thursday 26 May was Australian Army Boeing CH-47D Chinook helicopter A15-201.  It was spotted at Gladstone Airport by Col as it took on fuel.


A15-201 - which carries the name "Courage" - along with the nose art "Rough and Reddy" - is reportedly making its last flight before it is retired from service with the Army's 5th Aviation Regiment, C Squadron who are reportedly due to take delivery of more Boeing CH-47F ‘Foxtrot’ Chinook helicopters.

I believe that A15-201 departed to the Army Aviation Centre at Oakey as "Brahman 201".

Thanks mate!
