The Netherlands' acquisition of six Boeing CH-47F Chinook transport helicopters has encountered a six-month delay, with its first aircraft now scheduled for delivery in the last quarter of next year. All should be delivered by mid-2011, with the slippage having been attributed to software problems. Three aircraft will be operated in the Netherlands, with the remainder to initially be stationed in the USA for training purposes. Two programs to expand the Royal Netherlands Air Force's fixed-wing transport fleet have also suffered fresh delays. Nov 25, 2009
