Photographed by local plane spotters Don W and 'IAD' at Rockhampton Airport on Wednesday 23 October was Australian Army Boeing CH-47D Chinook A15-152.
Some research on A15-152 suggests that this Chinook is a recent acquisition for the Australian Army - delivered to the 5th Aviation Regiment in Townsville in June 2012. Prior to this, A15-152 (c/n M.3317) flew with the United States Army Aviation Branch as 89-00163.
Certainly a great sight at Rockhampton Airport, and this made three of the big transport helicopters on the ground, with the two Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing CH-47SD Chinooks still based at Rockhampton Airport.
