Just after inaugural flight of the Apache helicopter, Boeing presented the Chinook in Indian Colors that will be inducted into Indian Air Force.
It was spotted at the Boeing production facility in Arizona. After some more flights, it will be handed over to Indian Air Force.
Chinook is a two-rotor, battle proven helicopter. It saw action from Vietnam to Afghanistan and the Iraq War. The helicopter will be a game changer for IAF with its decent 9.6 tons of cargo capacity, which will enable IAF to carry heavy machinery, artillery guns, and even light armored vehicles to high altitude regions.
