Boeing receives contract for Dutch, Turkish CH-47 Chinook parts
by Stephen Carlson
Washington (UPI) Jul 6, 2017


Boeing has received a $14.3 million modification to a existing foreign military sales contract for parts changes on CH-47F Chinooks used by the Netherlands and Turkey.

The modification will go toward obsolete parts changes to account for low- or non-existent production of spares for older model airframes, the Department of Defense announced on Wednesday.

Work for the project will be conducted in Ridley Park, Penn., and is expected to be completed by Dec. 21, 2020. Fiscal 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2017 funds in the amount of $14.3 million have been obligated upon award.

The CH-47F Chinook is a twin-engine tandem rotor heavy-lift transport helicopter used by the U.S. Army and many allied nations like the Netherlands and Turkey. It features the ability to transport large payloads at high speed and over long ranges.

It is primarily used for troop and cargo transport, sling-load operations like placing artillery and battlefield resupply. The CH-47 series has been in use since its introduction in 1962 and has been upgraded and refurbished many times.
