Some Photos from Joint Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 Open Day at Rockhampton Showgrounds on Saturday

The joint Military Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 Open Day was held at the Rockhampton Showgrounds on Saturday 8 July.

Displays included light and heavy vehicles, troop carriers, bushmasters, as well heavy lifting and other trucks.  Military and performers also provided entertainment for the crowd.

On the bottom oval at the Showgrounds, an Australian Army tank was joined by Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-015 which flew across from Rockhampton Airport as "Destrier 15".

The United States Army (US Army) Sikorsky UH-60M Blackhawk helicopter 12-20435 was also on display after flying across from 'Camp Rocky' to the Rockhampton Showgrounds and back using the radio callsign of "Wolfpack".

It was certainly a lovely day, and the combined forces, as well as the Rockhampton Regional Council should be congratulated on running such a successful day!
