Eastbourne International Airshow 2016

22 Chinook HC4 The

22 Chinook HC4 The Chinook Display Team return for 2016 to Airbourne with a display on the Boeing Chinook HC4. The sequence will combine some of the previous years’ award winning sequences with new and exciting high energy manoeuvres which will demonstrate the versatility and manoeuvrability of such a large aircraft. The Chinook Display Team is made up of personnel from 18 and 27 Squadrons based at RAF Odiham in Hampshire. It is used primarily for trooping and for carrying internal and/or underslung loads. Secondary roles include search and rescue and casualty evacuation. The aircraft are well equipped for their varied roles and are fitted with a satellite Global Positioning System, an Instrument Landing System, comprehensive avionics that enable them to fly in airways, and an extensive radio suite. The aircraft cockpit has full night-time capability when operated with night-vision goggles. It is the only Helicopter in the fleet to boast a fully armoured cabin for its occupants and can be armed with two M134 six-barrelled Mini-guns. It is continually being modified and upgraded to keep it at the forward edge of the battlefield and has been involved in most of the recent UK operations.
