Over the course of this week, most of the six Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters have been photographed flying between Rockhampton Airport and the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and back, as the Singapore Armed Forces Exercise Wallaby 2022 continues.
A spectacular four-ship formation as "Celtic" was photographed returning to Rockhampton Airport on Monday 29 August - featuring 88162, 88169, 88167 and 88168.
While on Wednesday 31 August, 88161, 88168 and 88162 were photographed departing Rockhampton Airport again as "Celtic".
Of interest, also during the week, single Chinook helicopters have completed flights out of Rockhampton Airport to Shoalwater Bay and back as "Cyclops".
It also seems that Chinook 88171 has been deployed to and remains at the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).
The Singapore Armed Forces Exercise Wallaby 2022 (XWB22) goes through to the start of October.
Sincere thanks to local photographer Steve V and local plane spotter Scott H for allowing us to share these great photos!
