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.

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.
