As the Navy's newest ship's company prepared for her commissioning ceremony, two Navy helicopters marked a different milestone by making the first deck landings on Australia's largest warship.
A MRH90 'Taipan' from 808 Squadron and an S-70-B Seahawk from 816 Squadron flew to Fleet Base East, Sydney from their base at HMAS Albatross, Nowra to begin deck handling trials with Canberra's aviation support crew.
