The RAF has received the first of its 14 new Chinook helicopters, as part of a £1bn scheme to provide a “significant uplift” to its helicopter fleet.
The Ministry of Defence announced plans for the helicopters in 2011. They will bring the RAF’s Chinook force to 60.
The RAF said the new aircraft would be the “most advanced Chinook helicopter we have ever operated”.
