Canada, bless its big bear-fur-lined socks, doesn’t have the best record with helicopter procurement (just where are those Cyclones, exactly?) so it’s heartening to encounter a rotorcraft in Royal Canadian Air Force markings from a programme that appears to be going just fine, thank you very much. This, of course, is the first new CH-147F Chinook on its way from Ottawa to its new home at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, Ontario. The RCAF has purchased 15 of the Boeing heavy-lifters.
