Boeing CH-47F Chinook
@San Carlos Airport, San Carlos, CA
This Chinook departs after a long day of hosting the public during the Hiller Aviation Museum’s all helicopter HeliFest event. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters and this new model has a top speed of 195 mph, making it the world’s fastest military helicopter. The F-model is a rebuild effort of the CH-47D and to extend the model life to 2060, although there are many F-models that are all new airframes. These new Chinooks also sport a new color optimized for forest, desert, and sky backgrounds. Nikon D7100 w/80-400 mm, processing with Aperture.
