Wastewatch: £259 Million On Duff Chinooks

The Ministry of Defence has been severely criticised over an order of eight Chinook helicopters, costing £259 million, which remain grounded because of technical problems.

MPs on the Public Accounts Committee said the affair was "one of the worst examples of equipment procurement that the committee has seen".

In truth, this is just the latest in a long line of arms procurement fiascos, for which nobody ever seems to carry the can.
