1994 ch-47d M.7010 Royal Air Force ZD576 : RAF Chinook HC2 cnvt. from ex Chinook HC1 b-868; 7sqn w/o 02jun94
Royal Air Force ZD576 : Re-delivered as a Chinook HC.2 on 21 Apr 1994 and became the most infamous Chinook to serve with the RAF. On arrival at RAF Odiham, its No.1 engine had to be replaced. On 10 May 1994, a post-flight fault inspection revealed a dislocated mounting bracket causing the collective lever to have restricted and restrictive movement, which resulted in a Serious Fault Signal being sent as a warning to other UK Chinook operating units. On 17 May 1994 emergency power warning lights flashed multiple times and the No.1 engine was again replaced. On 25 May 1994 a serious incident occurred indicating the No.2 engine was about to fail.

Separately, in Oct 1993 the MoD test pilots at Boscombe Down had refused to certify the Chinook HC.2 as airworthy and on 1 Jun 1994, they refused to fly the HC.2 until engines, engine control systems and FADEC software were rectified on the model in RAF service.

On Thursday 2 Jun 1994 at around 1800hrs ZD576, callsign F4J40, crashed onto the Mull of Kintyre killing all 4 experienced crewmen and 25 highly skilled passengers. A review of the Board of Inquiry findings is available.
