On Wednesday 1 March, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-041 was spotted on approach to Rockhampton Airport. It was noted flying in from the South.
After taking on fuel, A40-041 departed to Townsville. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Destrier 41".
This is (what I believe to be) yet another new MRH-90 to ferry through Rockhampton Airport heading North to Townsville where the Army's 5th Aviation Regiment is based. The "Destrier" callsign is used by 'A Squadron' of the 5th Aviation Regiment.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
