|VH-LHZ arrives into Rockhampton Airport as "Choppa 41" two weeks ago (File photo)|
VH-LHZ arrived into Rocky over a fortnight ago in support of the three visiting RAAF Pilatus PC-9/A Forward Air Command (FAC) aircraft which were deployed to Rockhampton Airport to participate in a land/sea joint military exercise in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA). It it believed that VH-LHZ had a very quiet time, not departing Rockhampton Airport once during its two-week stay!
Of interest, VH-LHZ is owned by Lloyd Helicopters and operated by CHC Helicopters Australia, and is one of a number of choppers used for RAAF Search and Rescue jobs.
