RAF Chinook!


Recommended Posts

I loved travelling in them but had a few squeeky butt moments whilst doing it.  This photo I took from the tailgate of the one I was flying in along the Iraqi/Syrian border in 1991.

Not sure what your comment implies, Jack.  Dunna nuffink about them but Wikipedia says:

Quote

The Boeing Chinook is a large, tandem rotor helicopter operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF). A series of variants based on the United States Army's Boeing CH-47 Chinook, the RAF Chinook fleet is the largest outside the United States.[1] RAF Chinooks have seen extensive service in the Falklands War, the Balkans, Northern Ireland, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
