A stroll around Eagle Copters / Aeropower Bell Helicopter 212 VH-UEC

Currently albeit temporarily based at Rockhampton Airport and presumably in support of military exercises "Hamel" and "Talisman Saber 2015" at nearby Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA), is Aeropower Bell Helicopter 212 VH-UEC.
Of interest, VH-UEC is actually owned by Eagle Copters Ltd of Calgary, Canada however is operated by Aeropower Pty Ltd of Redcliffe Aerodrome, Brisbane.
Manufactured in 1974, VH-UEC is powered by a single Honeywell International T5318B Turboshaft powerplant.
