    While they look like boxcars, they are really quite maneuverable and capable of some amazing feats. Very stable platforms.

    Our Marine squadron flew the very similar CH-46 Sea Knight.

    Both the Army CH-47 Chinook and the Navy/Marine CH-46 Sea Knight are made by Boeing. Main difference are the engines and slightly different fuselage.

    I was just going to say lets give credit where credit is due; that is one good crew chief, and the pilot really trusts him!

    Right up there with rescuing people off K2 and Denali. And many of those pilots and crew are ex-military, too.
