Norway's BV234LR Chinook


             Below, the 22 February 1993 photographs taken at Stavanger [Sola], show Norway's two Boeing Vertol 234LR Chinook helicopters. Both helicopters were later sold and are no longer in service to the country of Norway. That is about all we know...

          Note: HUMS stands for Health and Usage Monitoring System. This system provided an active optical blade tracking system, airframe vibration analysis, component vibration analysis through various accelerometers, a Flight Data Recorder and a Cockpit voice recorder. Although in use for years in other countries, as late as 2003, this system was the standard on all Royal Air Force (RAF) HC-II aircraft. Beginning in September 2003, fielding began on some United States Army airframe systems, such as the UH-60 "Blackhawk" helicopter.
