India gets its first 4 Chinook heavy lift helicopters, to be stationed in Chandigarh


The first four of the 15 Chinook CH-47F (I) heavy lift helicopters ordered by the Indian Air Force from the US, in 2015, have arrived in India. The helicopters, which were handed over to the IAF earlier this month in Philadelphia, arrived at the Mundra port in Gujarat Sunday.

Announcing the arrival of the helicopters, Boeing in a statement said the CH-47F (I) Chinooks will be ferried to Chandigarh, where they will be formally inducted into the IAF later this year. “The ahead-of-schedule arrival of the Chinooks validates Boeing’s commitment to delivering on its promise of modernising India’s defence forces,” the company said in a statement.

“Through its current partnerships with Indian Air Force and Indian Navy, Boeing has ensured high rate of mission readiness and increased operational capabilities.” Read More
