The third season of the Australian drama Sea Patrol premiered as Sea Patrol 3: Red Gold on the Nine Network on 18 May 2009. Principal location filming was, as in past seasons, completed in and around the area of Mission Beach, Queensland. It has an announced budget of A$17 million.
When the crew are called upon to rescue the crew of a crashed helicopter they must risk exposure to toxic radiation when the crash site turns out to be an old British nuclear test site. Swain’s courage is called into question when he asks to be left out of the high-risk rescue operation and Bomber is sent instead, but he is forced to face his fears and a potentially dangerous dose of radiation when Bomber loses her footing and falls into the crater created by the nuclear blast
Charge digs into the history of the Island and uncovers a military conspiracy over the nuclear testing and a long-lost B-25 bomber with her crew still inside.
Guest actors: Ron Kelly (as Walker), Kurt Duval (as Setiawan), Brooke Harman (as Jessica), Shea Adams (as Swain Stunt Double), Nicole Downes (as Bomber Stunt Double), Aston Crabtree (as Bomber Stunt Double).
