Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopter A15-301 Spotted at Longreach Airport

On Wednesday 1 November, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-301 was spotted making a surprise visit to Longreach Airport.

Local plane spotter Calen H was on hand and captured some great photos as the twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift Chinook helicopter, which is operated by the Australian Army's 5th Aviation Regiment (5 Avn Regt) 'C' Squadron based at Townsville, touched down from Blackall on what was reportedly a navigational test flight that originated at Townsville.

After taking on fuel, the Chinook later departed home to Townsville.

Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Calen H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
