More Army Blackhawk and MRH-90 Helicopters Around Central Queensland Airports Friday

To cap off a busy week, more Australian Army helicopters have been spotted and noted passing through Central Queensland Airports on Friday 19 September including Sikorsky S-70A-9 Blackhawk helicopter A25-201 which local plane spotter Kayanne H captured arriving into Rockhampton Airport.

A25-201 is believed to have touched down at Rocky from Mackay Airport, and continued further South.  Of interest, A25-201 was using the usual radio callsign of "Scimitar 19".  Research shows this callsign is used mostly by Oakey-based Army helicopters.

Meanwhile, another Army Blackhawk, A25-211 was heard to depart Mackay and later land at Gladstone as "Spartan 211".

Finally on Friday 19 September, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-037 was later heard to also be touching down at Mackay Airport as "Destria 37", although its exact movements aren't known.

Sincere thanks to Kayanne for capturing these awesome images!
