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".
