During the 1991 Gulf War with Iraq, Chinook helicopters were responsible for transporting army personnel and equipment. After the start of the land battle, Chinooks ferried thousands of Iraqi POWs to rear camps. No. 18 Chinook Squadron, RAF, flew one thousand hours and lifted over a million kilograms of freight in the first seven weeks of Gulf War operations

The Chinook was first flown in September 1961, with the delivery of the first CH-47A to the US Army in August, 1962. The Chinook was used extensively during the Vietnam War, where they became ‘flying trucks’, moving every type of cargo including ordinance and heavy construction equipment. Roles included the transport of troops, medical evacuation, search and rescue and parachute drops. The Chinook remains in service today with the U.S. Army as well as with the military forces of other countries, including the Royal Air Force. The RAF operates the largest fleet of Chinook support helicopters after the U.S. Army.
