On the evening of January 22, 1991, eight members of a patrol with the call sign "Bravo Two Zero" were infiltrated by Chinook helicopter in Iraq. Their task was to observe the main supply route and to sever underground communications cables which ran between Baghdad and Jordan. In addition, they were to seek and destroy any SCUD missiles in the area. Each member of the patrol was overloaded with stores and equipment for the stay, and after landing the patrol moved some 20 km, where they found a small cave in which they chose to hide. The patrol was led by Sergeant Andy McNab.

Boeing Chinook HC.Mk 1

Designed as a turbine-powered replacement for the CH-37 Mojave, the CH-47 was first flown on September 21st, 1961. This iconic helicopter has had a long service history, seeing action in many different wars, from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The Chinook is the U.S. Army's heaviest-lifting helicopter, primarily serving as a troop transporter, with secondary roles including artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a crew of three and can move 55 combat-ready troops. Its wide-loading ramp can be opened in-flight for paratroopers, and three cargo hooks can extend through a floor hatch, which allows the Chinook to be used as a flying crane.
