Over 1,100 units have so far been produced for use in 20 countries around the world. The CH-47 is one of the most important transport helicopters of the U.S. Army. B Company of the 5th Battalion, 158th "Big Windy" Aviation Regiment operates the Chinook and is based at Katterbach, near the town of Ansbach, Bavaria.

Boeing CH-47D Chinook

Designed as a turbine-powered replacement for the CH-37 Mojave, the CH-47 was first flown on September 21st, 1961. This iconic helicopter has had a long service history, seeing action in many different wars, from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The Chinook is the U.S. Army's heaviest-lifting helicopter, primarily serving as a troop transporter, with secondary roles including artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a crew of three and can move 55 combat-ready troops. Its wide-loading ramp can be opened in-flight for paratroopers, and three cargo hooks can extend through a floor hatch, which allows the Chinook to be used as a flying crane.
