    1. I didn’t know Canada had an army.

    2. They’re still actively used in the British Armed Forces as well, and fail. Both spectacularly and regularly

    3. You’re completely right. Chinooks fail all the time, and that’s why they’re used so much by so many militaries.

    6. Alpha, you referring to the Blackhawk or the Chinook? I’ve heard the Chinook called a “shit hook”, but never a “shit hawk”. My dad flew the A and B models back in 67-69 and loved ’em.

      Awesome history site on the CH-47:

    7. Were your relatives flying the choppers, Alpha Harris?

      Because, you know, they might have just sucked.

    8. Alpha, if your story is true, then I’m sorry for your loss. But the fact is, you could look up any vehicle ever used by the military, be it airborne, on land, at sea, etc, and you’d be able to find a list of crashes.

      I’ve gotten to ride in a few Chinooks, and they’re not bad. The Chinook has been the bigger workhorse bird of the U.S. military since its inception, and it’s proven itself worthy of the designation far more often than not.

    9. At least it’s not an Osprey.

    10. I believe the shit hook is still the fastest american rotary winged aircraft. I’ve heard interviews with Apache and Crash Hawk pilots that have said that its a bit embarrasing to have to ask the shit hook pilot to slow down so you can keep up with it in your sleek state of the art Apache.
