Welcome back to the our channel for a feature on the various methods to extract military personnel or civilians in challenging and dangerous situations using the CH-47 Chinook Helicopter. This helicopter is amazing. Accelerating at 2000 MPH. They should scrap the F22's and Euro fighters. Loser fighter jet planes. 55 passengers? 14,000 lbs, I'm not sure those are correct numbers. Maybe the fox models are different, but the manual states 33 passengers, in emergency situations I know they take 126 passengers, men and women, with children in their laps. As far as sling load 24k tandem hooks. How can you tell that helicopter was designed by Boeing. it was designed by Vertol.
