A Pair of Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook Helicopters Spotted at Emerald Airport

On Monday 13 November, a pair of Australian Army Boeing CH-47F 'Foxtrot' Chinook helicopters were spotted passing through Emerald Airport.  They looked to fly down from Townsville and then later depart to the Oakey Army Aviation Centre.

The first to pass through was not identified (possibly A15-310) but was heard to use the radio callsign of "Patriot 326".

While the second which touched down later in the day was identified as A15-307 and was heard to use the radio callsign of "Patriot 329".

UPDATE!  On Friday 24 November, it appears that both Chinooks returned to the Townsville from Oakey via another fuel stop at Emerald Airport.
