Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopters A15-302 & A15-304 Pass Through Rockhampton Airport

On Monday 18 February, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters A15-302 and A15-304 were spotted passing through Rockhampton Airport.

A15-302 was heard to be flying as "Brahman 383" and was noted arriving into Rocky from Townsville.  After taking on fuel, it departed to RAAF Base Amberley.

Then A15-304, which was heard to be flying as "Brahman 389", also arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Townsville.  After taking on fuel, it too appeared to depart to Amberley.

Of interest, as reported below, yesterday on Sunday 17 February, fellow Army Chinook A15-301 was also spotted passing through Rockhampton Airport while also heading South.

Sincere thanks to the local plane spotters for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos of the two Chinook visitors!
