And Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache Helicopters Sunset Sorties out of Rockhampton Airport for Exercise Wallaby 2021

Some more great photos shared to us from this week as the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache helicopters that have deployed to Rockhampton Airport complete late afternoon and sunset sorties to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and back as the Singapore Armed Forces Exercise Wallaby 2021 (XWB21) continues.

What looks like Apaches 066, 069 and 067 (wearing the red tail crest) were photographed below as they returned to Rockhampton Airport from Shoalwater Bay on Wednesday 22 September, flying together as "Astro".

As mentioned, all four Apache helicopters are flown by the RSAF's 120 Squadron "Kestrel" (also known as the "Red Hawks") based at Sembawang Air Base in Singapore.  The Squadron is the first and oldest RSAF operational squadron in service, first formed in 1969.  The squadron goes by the motto of "Strive To Achieve".
