I think in Brisbane if my memory serves...

I think you're right. Was in Brisbane last year a couple of times and there are signs near the airport about them being built in Brisbane.

These are from the air show in Cozumel (which I didn't know about until checking into my hotel).

I see a hoist on this NH-90. I know one of the guys who has to go in the water to rescue people. (He is currently flying in an AB-412.) The downwash of the NH-90 is so bad, he does not want to work in it. Nice chopper to see though...

That's actually pretty interesting to hear. Thanks for sharing.

I'm curious if they succeed in solving this problem. The AB-412 are to be retired and the NH90 is supposed to take over it's task as SAR chopper... At the moment Dutch NH90 are not equipped with a hoist.

The RNZAF only started taking delivery of the NH90 a few weeks ago. The two that have been delivered are still undergoing testing so it'll be interesting to see if any issues arise from the downwash affecting operation of the hoist.
