More ADF MRH-90 Helicopters at Rockhampton Airport and Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA)

On Friday 22 May more Australian Defence Force (ADF) NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopters were heard flying out of and around the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA), with at least one calling into Rockhampton Airport briefly.

A40-004 arriving at Rockhampton last month

Australian Army MRH-90 A40-004 popped in and out of Rocky as "Destria 04".

"Destria 19" presumably A40-019 was also heard transiting Rocky airspace heading North.

A little later, an unidentified Army MRH-90 landed near Rockhampton Airport, while later still, another MRH-90 using the radio callsign "Templar 93" was heard transiting Rocky airspace heading South.

Meanwhile, what was believed to be an Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Helicopter was heard departing Shoalwater Bay as "Nightmare 11".

What a great callsign!
