Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopter A15-301 "Chainsaw 12" Pops into Rockhampton Airport

On Wednesday 12 July, Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopter A15-301 was spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport. It was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Chainsaw 12" and flew in from and back out to the North-East - possibly from and back to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).

It is also believed that the Chinook also recently deployed to the Royal Australian Navy ship HMAS Adelaide which seems to be in waters near Shoalwater Bay.

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