RAF Odiham: Chinook Helicopters

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many combat-ready Chinook helicopters are stationed at RAF Odiham. (290376)

There are 26 Chinook helicopters in the Forward Fleet available to the Front Line Command for operational and training purposes. This includes those based at RAF Odiham for training, trials and other UK defence tasks.

I am withholding the number of helicopters we have deployed as release would, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of our armed forces.
