VH-SYV was flying as "Choppa 42" and originally departed RAAF Base Amberley for Roma Airport before it then continued to Longreach Airport. After taking on additional fuel, VH-SYV "Choppa 42" then continued to Mount Isa where it appeared to be staying for the night.
UPDATE! On Thursday 6 February, VH-SYV "Choppa 42" continued from Mount Isa to Tennant Creek and then RAAF Base Tindal in the Northern Territory.
