Chinook Landing

Pic By: JNC
Australian Army soldiers from the Townsville-based 5th Aviation Regiment provide the Coalition Forces in the Middle Eastern Area of Operation (MEAO) with a medium lift capability as they transport troops and equipment.  The Chinook (CH47) has the capacity to lift up to 11.7 Tons, carrying internal and/or external loads, or 30 combat troops. Over time, the Chinook has consistently proven to be a reliable and capable aircraft having been used in conflicts such as the Falklands and the Gulf war and now Operation Falconer.  The CH 47 aircraft has proven itself working with the Australian Armys 3rd Brigade in providing essential support to deployed elements as is commonly referred to as the work-horse of the Armys helicopter regiment.   While the Chinook helicopter has been in service since the Vietnam Conflict, this variant remains one of the latest additions to the Australian Armys aviation capability.

    The Canadian Forces recently got rid of most/all of their Chinooks because they kept sinking.


    chinook’s aren’t boats, and therefore don’t float very well in the first place.


    Ladies and Gentlemen, the Canadian army



    I was always amazed that Chinooks are faster than Apaches


    They’re alot more manouverable too.


    but will it take off?


    I think the question for this picture is, “Will it land?”


    brilliant use of logic, guys. I applaud you.
