The fifth and sixth of 15 Boeing CH-47F Chinook heavy-lift helicopters ordered by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in late 2015 for USD1.1 billion arrived at Mundra port in India’s western state of Gujarat on 8 July 2019.

The two Chinooks will join four others that entered service in March 2019 at the Chandigarh airbase, which is located about 250 km north of New Delhi.

Boeing officials said these two Chinooks will, like the previous four, be assembled at Mundra and ferried to Chandigarh.

They also said that the arrival of two more Chinooks is in “line with their planned delivery schedule”.
