Boeing eyes 150 new CH-47F sales through 2022
Boeing, on Monday, said it expects to sell 150 more of its popular CH-47F Chinook helicopters to foreign countries through 2022, with the helicopter drawing strong interest from new countries outside the 19 nations that already operate it.
Steve Parker, Boeing’s vice president for cargo helicopters, told Reuters that Boeing expected a number of buyers from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, including “quite a number of new additional countries.” He declined to give further details.
