On Thursday 6 June, Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk 'Romeo' naval combat helicopter N48-024 (Code 924) was spotted completing a missed approach at Rockhampton Airport.
It arrived from parts unknown to the North-East via overhead Yeppoon as "Tiger 24”.
After completing the missed approach, N48-024 departed the Rockhampton area for the East.
It is believed that N48-024 - seemingly of the RAN's 816 Squadron - is off a Royal Australian Navy ship with as many as three also sighted both in waters off the Central Queensland coast and in port at Gladstone.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotters Kayanne H and Jason M for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
