Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter A38-010 Finally Arrives into Rockhampton Airport - Plus More!

On Friday 16 July, Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter A38-010 was spotted as it finally arrived into Rockhampton Airport for joint military Exercise Talisman Sabre 2021.  It looked to arrive as "Angry 21" from Mackay Airport, where it was believed to have been parked with a technical problem since the middle part of the week.

It joins the three other Australian Army Tiger ARH Helicopters A38-004, A38-006 and A38-011 which all arrived into Rockhampton Airport from Townsville via Mackay Airport on Wednesday 14 July.

Meanwhile, also on Friday 16 July, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-307 as "Brahman 369" departed Rockhampton Airport to Mackay Airport and back, no doubt in support of the Tiger ARH helicopter A38-010. 

A15-307 later completed a return flight to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and back to Rockhampton Airport but as "Brahman 357".

While fellow Chinook A15-302 as "Brahman 304" hopped across from Rockhampton Airport to the nearby Australian Army Defence Support Group (DSG) 'Camp Rocky' before then completing several flights out and back to the South-East - as pictured below.

Later, A15-302 did more of the same but changed its radio callsign to "Hooker 304".

Sincere thanks to local photographer Steve V for allowing to share these great photos!
