CH-147F Proving its worth to Royal Canadian Air Force

The Boeing CH-147 Chinook is becoming a prime time player for the Royal Canadian Air Force, with its versatility and tactical abilities being displayed regularly. The heavy helicopter shows off a stunning combination of quickness and power. It can maneuver through and land in tight and tricky places, while having heavy lifting capabilities like its Hafthór Björnsson. The maximum gross takeoff weight that it can handle is listed at around 50,000 pounds.

The king sized helicopter is able to accomplish many different kinds of missions, not just ones that involve picking up heavy stuff and moving it somewhere else. It can also support the Canadian army in the field of battle, assist in natural disaster relief, or provide humanitarian assistance.

Recently, it was able to show just what it could do at a flight demonstration with 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron at the Canadian Forces Base is Petawawa, Ontario. Along with the squadron of smaller helicopter, they were able to take their enemy completely by surprise, and complete the transport of three 4,000 pound loads. Most of Boeing helicopter would need three separate trips to be able to do that. The 23,000 lb helicopter shows off some insane capabilities. With a three-man crew and 28,000 extra pounds to carry, its stats are impressive.
