Cloncurry will get to see the return of a familiar and welcoming sight on Thursday.
In 2019 the army was in town lending a hand in the aftermath of the terrible north west Queensland floods, but now they are on a more pleasant mission.
Captain Carolyn Bennett of the 5th Aviation Regiment of the Australian Army 16th Aviation Brigade said they were currently at the airport and would be flying MRH90 Taipan helicopters to the Cloncurry Recreation Grounds where they will be on display from 10am to 2pm.
"We think we are going to get a lot of people there, we've invited the whole township of Cloncurry," Captain Bennett said.
Captain Bennett said this was a change to reconnect with the community two years after the floods.
Cloncurry Shire Council said they were excited for the visit.
"A static display and walk through is a rare opportunity so don't miss out," Council said.
