Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopters A15-301 & A15-302 "Fatboy" Pass Through Rockhampton Airport

On Monday 1 August, a nice a pair of Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters - A15-301 and A15-302 - were spotted passing through Rockhampton Airport by local plane spotters Trevor H and Kayanne H.

The two twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopters arrived from Townsville and were noted using the formation callsign of "Fatboy".

After taking on fuel, both Chinooks continued South to RAAF Base Amberley again as "Fatboy".

Sincere thanks to Trevor and Kayanne for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos and video!
