More Pictures and Information about the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Helicopters at Rockhampton Airport for Wallaby 2011

Over the last weekend I was briefly at Rockhampton Airport and managed to get a first-hand look at the Republic Of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) helicopters that are participating in Exercise Wallaby 2011 and that are parked on Runway 04/22.

There were five Eurocopter AS332M Super Puma helicopters present. Their serials are believed to be 292, 276, 296, 293, and 281.

Also noted were four Boeing AH-64D Apache helicopters with serials 065, 066, 063, and 067.

Apache 067 was photographed earlier in the Exercsie by Ben O and is noted wearing a red crest on its tail.

Also on Friday 14 October, I noted RSAF Lockheed C-130H Hercules - serial 733 - depart Rockhampton Airport on a local flight using the callsign "Condor".

I was lucky enough to get a couple of taxi and departure photos from 'Apron Drive' at Rockhampton Airport. You'll note the horses in the paddock near the airport - I am told they are quite an attraction for the Singapore soldiers.
