The Boeing CH-47 Chinook

The venerable CH-47 Chinook helicopter was first delivered to the U.S. Army in 1962 for use in Vietnam.  This versatile aircraft platform has proven itself to be an indispensible tool of mobility for the Army.  It can carry up to 33 fully equipped troops, 42 cubic meters of cargo, Humvees, 105mm Howitzers, and 24 litters during medivac missions.  There are 3 external hooks which can transport large external loads, such as 155mm Howitzers, at speeds of to 160 mi./hr.  It has the capability to take-off and land on water, and designed to float!  Upgrades to all remaining Chinooks were made in 1994 that included composite rotor blades, and improvements to the navigation, communications, and avionic systems.

Water Ops by Dru Blair

In "Water Ops," artist Dru Blair shows the versatile Chinook skimming across a lake at high speed in preparation for a troop insertion.  The tremendous forces at work are evidence by the spray careening both vertically and forward of the front gear.  In addition to the standard edition, a limited number of Artist's Proofs are also available.
