It then looked to complete a flight to Yeppoon Hospital (reportedly) and back to Rockhampton Airport before then returning to Proserpine Airport.
Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 25 July, United States Marine Corps (USMC) Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft were again noted in the Whitsundays region, flying down from RAAF Base Scherger and Townsville to the Whitsundays. The unknown number of Ospreys then returned North.
Online flight tracking websites did suggest that one (of the only Osprey) in the air was 168687 (YZ-13) of VMM-363 ‘Lucky Red Lions’.
