Australian Army MRH-90 Helicopter A40-015 at Rockhampton Airport as "Destrier 15"

On Friday 7 July, Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-015 was spotted visiting Rockhampton Airport.

In fact it appears to have made two visits, arriving from Townsville and then departing before returning a little while later.  It then departed again to similar parts before returning to Rockhampton Airport later in the day.

For all of its flights, A40-015 was heard to be using the radio callsign "Destrier 15".

Of interest, it appears that the visit by the MRH-90 might also coincide with the Talisman Saber 2017 Open Day at the Rockhampton Showgrounds on Saturday 8 July.  Information suggests that a MRH-90 will be on display and I suspect that A40-015 could be the machine on display!
