Comment(s):

Boeing announced on December 7, 2020 to have delivered all 14 new CH-47F Chinook helicopters. Boeing Philadelphia delivers the Royal Netherlands Air Force CH-47F (referred to as CH-47F CAAS II) to US Army Huntsville. From there the new Chinooks either remain at this location (SES International) or are delivered to 302 squadron based at US Army Fort Hood, Texas. The Chinooks which will be assigned to 298 squadron wikk be delivered to Gilze-Rijen during the first quarter of 2021.

The new (retrofitted *) CH-47F's are equal to the US Army CH-47F MYII CAAS (Common Avionics Architecture System) standard. By the end of 2020 all 14 new Chinooks should be delivered with the retrofitted six helicopters to be delivered by the end of 2021.

Details covering the highlights of the RNLAF CH-47F 'CAAS II' program can be read under CH-47F milestones.

* Six CH-47F's were bought in 2007, these will be retrofitted. New fuselages will be built and parts which can be (re)used from the current helicopters will be fitted. It's currently unknown which of the squadrons will operate the retrofitted Chinooks. Originally the six were equally divided between both squadrons however one was transferred from 298 to 302 squadron.
