Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-037 "Snooker 41" Passes Through Rockhampton Airport - Plus More!

Also on Thursday 20 July, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-033 was spotted passing through Rockhampton Airport.  It looked to arrive from Brisbane and later depart to Townsville.

A40-037 was heard to be using the radio callsign of "Snooker 41".

Of interest, another MRH-90 A40-015 as "Trooper 46" completed a flight out of the Oakey Army Aviation Centre to Kingaroy Aerodrome and then back to Oakey.

Meanwhile, also on Thursday 20 July, CHC Helicopters Australia / Lloyd Helicopters Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-SYV as "Choppa 42" was noted flying up from RAAF Base Amberley to Mount Isa, flying via Roma and Longreach Airports.

UPDATE!  On Friday 21 July, VH-SYV "Choppa 42" continued from Mount Isa to Borroloola and RAAF Base Tindal where it is possibly deploying to for the upcoming joint Military Exercise Talisman Sabre 2023 (TS23).
