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. RAF Chinooks have seen extensive service in the Falklands War, the Balkans, Northern Ireland, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The Chinook aircraft, normally based at RAF Odiham, provides heavy-lift support and transportation across all branches of the British armed forces. The RAF has a total of 60 Chinooks in active stock as of 2015. In 2018, the UK issued a petition to the United States to purchase 16 additional aircraft. The Chinook is forecast to stay in RAF service until the 2040s.
