The aircraft will be sold and transferred to South Korea once the US Army begins taking receipt of new-production CH-47F model aircraft, a process estimated to begin in January 2014.
The Boeing CH-47D Chinook cargo helicopters are currently operated by U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) in the ROK. This proposed sale of CH-47D aircraft equipped with T55-GA-714A engines will be provided from U.S. Army inventory located at Camp Humphrey, South Korea. The T55-GA-714A Engines to be provided as spares will also be provided from U.S. Government inventory.
