Exercise Wallaby 2015 - Some More RSAF Helicopter and F-16 Action at Rockhampton Airport This Week

Local plane spotter Kayanne H popped out to Rockhampton Airport on Tuesday 3 November and captured some more great photos of the various Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) helicopters and F-16 fighter jets as the action of the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2015 continued.

Kayanne spotted a pair of RSAF Aerospatiale / Eurocopter AS332M Super Puma helicopters departing to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) together as "Diamond".

Soon after, two flights of RSAF General Dynamics (Lockheed Martin) F-16D Block 52 Version Fighting Falcon jets returned from Shoalwater Bay, arriving in turn as "Viper" and "Hornet". Again both pairs of F-16s performed initial and pitch arrivals onto Runway 15 at Rocky.

Finally, Kayanne captured one of the five Boeing AH-64D Apaches - believed to be 059 - as it flew around 'Warriors Camp' - the RSAF landing ground inside the Australian Army Defence Support Group (DSG) 'Camp Rocky' which is adjacent to Rockhampton Airport.

Some great photos captured by Kayanne who certainly had a great time while she was there!

Thanks heaps!
