1st of 6 Chinook helicopters arrives for Nevada National Guard


The Nevada Army National Guard has received the state's first F-model Chinook helicopter.

It's the first of six helicopters that will come into Stead after flying in Afghanistan.

Officials say the aircraft have digital controls that replace the old steam gauge cockpit, and it will eventually phase out the older models.

The second Chinook is expected to arrive in Nevada in the next month.
