Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopters at Ft Campbell

The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is a versatile, twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. Its top speed of 170 knots (196 mph, 315 km/h) was faster than utility and attack helicopters of the 1960s and even many of today. Its primary roles include troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and three external-cargo hooks.

This was my old hangar (C-7/101st AVN REGT) back in 1989-1993. (The big one directly to the right of the wash area) This entire bunch of Chinooks now reside at Ft. Hood, TX. ... with the exception of my aircraft (85-24347, which has been reassigned to a provate company and serves as a testbed for armor plating and bulletproof cockpits. C-7/101 is now a Blackhawk unit.
