The cost of flying hours and repairs for Operation Newcombe are not held separately from overall RAF Chinook costs. Equipment repair costs in theatre are about £2.5 million per annum. Fuel and other related flying costs (e.g. consumables and stock used in theatre) for the hours flown are about £10.8 million per annum.
