Chinook arrives at Newark Air Museum

Chinook Rebuild Update at Newark Air Museum

In recent days a small but significant step has been taken in the ongoing restoration of BV Chinook HC.1 helicopter, ZA717 at Newark Air Museum.

This has seen all of the temporary plastic sheeting removed from the windows in the Chinook's fuselage; the Perspex glazing fitted to each window and the majority of the glue residues removed from the fuselage surfaces.

This represents an important step forward in securing the fuselage from the elements, and the attached photos show the helicopter inside and out after the work has been completed.
