Great Photos from the Rockhampton Showgrounds of Australian Army Exercise Rocky Ready Community Demonstration Day

A great morning at the Rockhampton Showgrounds on Sunday 16 October for the Army / Defence Force Recruiting open day, with many assets on display that have currently been participating in Exercise Rocky Ready.

The three-day joint Australian Defence Force (ADF) and Regional Emergency Services joint training exercise saw a pair of Australian Army marked Leonardo S.P.A. (Agusta) AW139 Helicopters VH-YBF and VH-YBG deploy to Rockhampton Airport from Townsville.

The Australian Army’s 11th Brigade joined together with Queensland state emergency services to conduct Exercise Rocky Ready 2022 in and around Rockhampton and Shoalwater Bay Training Area, to train and prepare for a coordinated and effective response to a severe weather event, in the lead up to the 2022/23 High Risk Weather Season.

Sincere thanks to local Blog follower and fan Mark S for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
