Boeing CH-47 Chinook
@San Carlos Airport, San Carlos, CA
This Chinook dusts off the taxiway as it lands for the Vertical Challenge helicopter airshow. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters and has a top speed of 170 knots (196 mph) making it faster than contemporary 1960s utility helicopters and attack helicopters.
