Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Sikorsky S-70B Seahawk N24-006 / 875 Pops into Gladstone Airport Thursday

Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Sikorsky S-70B-2 Seahawk helicopter N24-006 / 875 popped into Gladstone Airport briefly on Thursday 19 November.



This photos above - shared on our Facebook page by Sam S - show the Seahawk - flown by 816 Squadron - parked in front of the General Aviation (GA) hangars at Gladstone Airport where it is believed to have taken on fuel before departing onward to parts unknown.  It reportedly put on a show for local plane watchers before flying off as "Tiger 75".

Meanwhile, following its visit to Rockhampton Airport the previous day, on Thursday 19 November, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-024 was heard flying overhead Rockhampton heading back North for Mackay again as "Destria 24".  Also, fellow MRH-90 A40-019 was heard to fly South overhead Rockhampton as "Destria 19".
