NY Army Guard gets 3 new Chinook helicopters

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The New York Army National Guard at Rochester is getting three of the latest model Chinook helicopters.

The CH-47F aircraft will arrive from Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia, Wednesday afternoon at Rochester International Airport.

The aircraft can be used to support state emergency response missions as the CH-47D helicopters flown out of Rochester did in 2011 and 2012 when they were used to move priority supplies.
