Some more red ones! These Oz Hueys(4 I think?) were painted red for a tour of duty with the Peace Monitoring Group, Bougainville, 04/98 to 07/01.

G'day

I saw olive drab on top and black underneath main rotors. Some had white tail rotors with black stripes.

 

The helo's sure weren't painted red, might look red in a certain light but trust me, they were like an International orange colour. I was there during OP BELISI in 1997,1998 & 1999,  aboard HMAS Tobruk LSH 50.:thumbsup2:
