The heavy lift helicopter from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 463 landed on HMAS Canberra’s flightdeck on July 17 as the ship was off the coast of Hawaii taking part in RIMPAC 2016.
A few days earlier a USMC MV-22 Osprey had also landed aboard the Canberra for the first time as part of a US Navy and USMC aviation integration program to clear its rotary-wing assets for operations from the RAN’s new LHDs.
