Royal Netherlands Air Force receives last CH-47F helicopter
Boeing has delivered the 20th CH-47F Chinook helicopter to the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF), the company announced on 15 November.
The delivery marks the conclusion of the Netherlands’ latest fleet update for its Chinooks.
In 2016, the RNLAF purchased14 new CH-47Fs through a US DoD FMS programme.
A year later, the force signed an agreement to upgrade their remaining six D-model Chinook helicopters to the latest F-model configuration, ensuring commonality of systems for the entire 20-aircraft fleet.
The delivery target for the last Apache E-model is set for 2025.
