Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-006 Pops into Emerald Airport

On Tuesday 22 January, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-006 was noted calling into Emerald Airport.  It looked to arrive from the Oakey Army Aviation Centre and was heard to use the radio callsign of "Vigilance 84".

It appeared to depart further to the North, possibly to Townsville.

UPDATE!  Late on Wednesday 23 January, presumably a Royal Australian Navy (RAN) MRH-90 was noted completing a missed approach at Gladstone Airport.  It appears that Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Canberra-class landing helicopter dock (LHD) ship HMAS Adelaide (III) (L01) is currently in waters of the Capricorn Coast.

UPDATE!  On Friday 25 January, A40-006 "Vigilance 84" was noted flying over inland parts while on a flight back to Oakey from Townsville.  It is unclear if it landed anywhere such as Emerald Airport.
