On Friday 11 August, United States Navy (USN) Sikorsky MH-60S Seahawk (Knighthawk) helicopter 168538 / RB-07 was photographed by local plane spotter ‘IAD’ as it arrived into Rockhampton Airport as "Knightrider 07".
It looked to arrive from the USS Bonhomme Richard and after dropping off passenger, it was noted returning to the Ship.
The Knighthawk is flown by the Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 25 (HSC-25) "Island Knights" and is presently deployed and assigned with CVW-5 on board USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6). It is also reported that the "Island Knights" squadron is based at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
Sincere thanks to to ‘IAD’ for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
