On Wednesday 24 May, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-302 was spotted departing Rockhampton Airport for the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) after earlier (presumably) arriving from its Townsville base.
It appears that the two twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter returned to Rocky to a little later in the day as it was then heard departing home to Townsville during the middle part of the afternoon. A15-302 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Brahman 302".
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter 'IAD' who was at the right place at the right time to capture these great photos!
