MORE than 60 members of Rotary
Wing Group 6 (RWG 6) returned
home to Australia on November 3
after eight months operating two
Chinooks in Afghanistan.
The task group, drawn mainly from
the Townsville-based 5 Avn Regt with
some members from the broader 16
Avn Bde, was embedded with the US
101st Combat Aviation Brigade, known
as Task Force Lift, at Kandahar Airfield
from February this year.
RWG 6 CO Lt-Col Neil Monaghan
said the deployment had been a suc-
"I'm really proud of my team, the
way they've taken the challenge to
come here for eight months head-on
with a minimum of fuss," he said.
"I think they have done a fantastic
job. We've achieved everything that our
mission set out for us to do."
The detachment operated through-
out Uruzgan, Daykundi, Kandahar and
RWG 6 OPSO Capt Luke Hodda
said the task group flew hundred of
hours and transported thousands of pas-
sengers and almost half a million kilo-
grams of cargo during the deployment.
"Eighty-five per cent of our work is
combat service support; moving peo-
ple and cargo around the battle space,"
Capt Hodda said.
"However, we have also provided
support to construction of Afghan
National Army checkpoints, two peri-
ods of support to Special Operations
Task Group and conducted combat sup-
port tasks such as air assaults with the
US conventional infantry."
The low point of the RWG 6 rota-
tion was the death of aviator Lt Marcus
Case who was killed when one of the
Chinooks crashed while undertaking a
re-supply mission in Zabul Province on
"The loss of Marcus and aircraft
102, and the ramifications of that, will
affect everyone who was part of this
detachment for the rest of their lives,"
Lt-Col Monaghan said.
For the first time since RWG began
operations in 2006, the Chinooks will
remain in Kandahar over the Afghan
winter for their scheduled deep-level
RWG 7 will start operations in
Afghanistan next February.
