After heading North a couple of weeks ago, the locally-based Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS) (Babcock Mission Critical Services Australasia) Bell 412EP helicopter VH-VAU returned to Rockhampton Airport on Sunday 2 June from a deployment to Horn Island in Far North Queensland.
VH-VAU was phtoographed at Townsville after earlier arriving from Cooktown and Cairns. It then departed to Mackay Airport before landing back at Rocky.
VH-VAU had been in Far North Queensland where it replaced the usually Horn Island-based Babcock Mission Critical Services Australasia Bell 412EP VH-PXY which operates locally on medical evacuation flights as "Rescue 700".
