    Royal Air Force CH-47F Chinook

    The Chinook HC.6 was first ordered in 2009. The initial request for 24 aircraft was later reduced to 14.
    14 serials reserved for new airframes, ZK550-ZK563, with deliveries due to commence in 2015. The 14th and final airframe was delivered to the RAF in early Dec 2015.
    A second batch of 14 new build H-47(ER) was ordered in 2021 for deliveries beginning in 2023.
