Lifting for departure back to Nowra after being on static display at Wings Over the Illawarra 2014. The ADF's first Squirrel, this aircraft was delivered to the RAAF on 28 February 1984 and initially served with the ADF Helicopter School at RAAF Fairbairn. In October 2000 it was transferred to the RAN, still in it's original blue and white colour scheme. It currently serves with 723 Squadron at HMAS Albatross, Nowra.
