Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopters A15-303 & A15-305 Back at Rockhampton Airport as "Chainsaw"

After passing through Rockhampton Airport earlier in the month, on Tuesday 20 September, the pair of Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters - A15-303 and A15-305 - were again photographed passing through Rocky.

This time, the two Chinooks, which are both operated by the Australian Army's 5th Aviation Regiment (5 Avn Regt) 'C' Squadron based at Townsville, touched down from Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Amberley.

They then took on fuel and later departed home to Townsville.  As with their previous visit, they two Chinooks were noted to by flying together using the radio callsign of "Chainsaw".

Meanwhile, a pair of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air turboprops were noted completing airwork at a couple of CQ Airports also on Tuesday 20 September.  A32-437 - flying as "Dingo 36" - was noted departing Townsville and completing airwork at both Mackay and Biloela / Thangool Airports before landing at Amberley.  While A32-436 - flying as "Hudson 7" completed airwork at Mackay Airport after flying North from the Gold Coast.
