On Friday 4 November, local plane spotters Trevor H and Kayanne H were on hand at Rockhampton Airport to capture some photos of the visiting Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-009.
While not confirmed, it may have broken down after arriving at Rocky late on Wednesday 2 November - see Blog post below.
A40-009 was spotted being pushed into a better parking position - which was to allow fellow Australian Army MRH-90 A40-011 to also park on the Rockhampton Airport apron. It arrived from Townsville as "Destrier 11".
As the afternoon went on, A40-011 returned to Townsville via Mackay again as "Destrier 11".
It appears that A40-009 remains parked at Rockhampton Airport.
Sincere thanks to Trevor and Kayanne for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
