The forward fuselage of a former USAF CH-47D Chinook has been cosmetically restored to represent the famous Falklands Veteran RAF Chinook HC Mk 1, ZA718 'Bravo November'.

The long-serving Boeing CH-47 Chinook twin-engined, tandem rotor heavy-lift transport helicopter has served for many years with numerous air arms.

First flown in 1961 and much-used in the Vietnam War, deliveries to the RAF began in 1980, and the Chinook, with its distinctive 'Wokka Wokka' rotor noise remains a vital part of RAF Operations in Afghanistan and anywhere the RAF operates.
