Nah, the photographer got most of the ship in the shot.
Nope, that's a radio antenna on the bow, about 20' tall.

I jumped out of that boy many times when I was little girl. It's absolutely an amazing chopper. I am in love as well as in awe of it and those who worked to develop and maintain it.

101st?

I used to know the pilot with the non-stop flight record in a Chinook. He said his teeth chatterd for week afterwards.

Kind of looks like a shocked fish.

They can carry their weight in guns and ammo according to a friend. He was a door gunner '68-'70. His bird transported me one, amazing to find a person you know from Alexandria, Indiana, there, in that place and time.

...



Nop. I did abroad, with a foreign Air Force. The closest I got to the 101st is twice the maneuvers we did with the USAF and USNavy. It was just for like less than a week. that's it. That chopper is phenomenal. I should have "kidnapped" one when I had a chance (no pun intended).

I m curious as to what type of flight that was. I  like reading US military autobiographies. Extremely fascinating.  And just from reading what I can put my hands on, I mean the hell these these Guys go through, the missions, etc. Astonishing!!

Yes they do. It must be so cool to fly in them as a civilian. Never tried that. But I consider myself fortunate to have created that opportunity for me. The US military is f ing Wild. I Adore it with everything I got. The Troops the Equipment, the Everything except the politics.

Here's  a clip I found of what the chinnoks  can do. One pilot managed to perch its back & ramp on the top of a montain so the soldiers could get supplied, another did the same but on the ocean, opened the back ramp for this zodiac to shoot right in, and the 3rd demoed the over 11 tons chopper as if he's messing around in his little brother's winged bicycle (LOL). Minute mark of about 3 to 8.
