100th modified Chinook delivered to US Army

25th June 2012 - 14:57 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has announced that it has delivered the 100th modified CH-47F Chinook helicopter to the US Army in a ceremony at the company's modification centre in Millville. The company made the announcement 22 June 2012.

The Millville facility has been operating since February 2012. After the army takes delivery of the Chinooks from the Boeing production line in Philadelphia, the aircraft are flown to Millville, where Boeing structural and electrical employees make avionics and airframe modifications to support new army requirements.

Boeing modifies the helicopters under an Initial Production and Fielding Support contract that also includes training support on the upgrades for Army Chinook units. Boeing deploys two New Equipment Training teams, consisting of CH-47F mechanics and technicians, to support US Army units around the world.
