On Wednesday 7 March, Royal Australian Navy (RAN) marked NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-020 was photographed by local plane spotter Scott H as it departed Rockhampton Airport for Townsville. It looked to arrive from Brisbane.
It was interesting to note that A40-020 was using the same radio callsign of "Pegasus 88" which Australian Army MRH-90 A40-032 used as it flew South to Brisbane on Tuesday 6 March - see Blog post below.
It appears the MRH-90 helicopters are flying to the Airbus in Australia Pacific (Airbus Helicopters) hangar at Brisbane Airport which is providing support to the Australian Defence Force's 47 MRH-90 Taipan multi-role helicopters, along with the 22 Eurocopter ARH Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopters for the Australian Army.
Sincere thanks again to Scott H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
