As we mentioned on our Facebook page earlier in the week, a pair of small United States Army (US Army) turboprop aircraft were noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Darwin.
They were identified as Beech C-12J Huron (Beech 1990C-1) 86-00082 "Cats 83" and Beech C-12U-3 Huron (B200C) 84-00155 "Cats 72" and have since spent their time parked on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport apron.
Information suggested that they were due to return to Cairns during the week but as shown, they remain at Rockhampton Airport and were moved to the Southern end of the parking apron on Saturday 26 August.
Of interest, both aircraft are flown by the 6th Battalion of the 52nd Aviation Regiment (6/52nd AVN) of the US Army. It appears that they also spent some time flying with the United States Air Force (USAF).
