Also popping into Rockhampton Airport for a short time, also on Sunday 30 June, was United States Navy (USN) Sikorsky MH-60S Seahawk (Knighthawk) helicopter 168546 / RB-05 flying as "Knightrider 05".
It is believed to have arrived from and then later depart back to the USS Wasp (LHD-1), which is currently in the area to participate in the forthcoming joint Military Exercise Talisman Sabre 2019 (TS19).
The Knighthawk is flown by the Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 25 (HSC-25) "Island Knights" and is presently deployed and assigned with CVW-5 on board USS Wasp (LHD-1). It is also reported that the "Island Knights" squadron is based at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Scott H who was at the right place at the right time and capturing these great photos!
