It may look like a Chinook on steroids, but this was the first public appearance in Scotland of the HC3 variant of the Chinook. Something of a political hot potato, it was delivered in 2002, but was immediately placed in storage along with another seven examples due to software issues. They have recently undergone a costly "reversion" project to allow them to enter operational service alongside the RAF's remaining 38 or so HC2s and HC2As at Odiham.
