CH47 lifts a UH60

A California Army National Guard UH60M was in a remote area, that was inaccessible by maintenance vehicles when it was deemed to need maintenance during a training mission.So who do you call? The California Army National Guard’s UH60 bigger brother, The CH47F.

That shows the raw power of the Chinook! Simply stunning to see that. I think I’ve got you beat, though.

The MI26 is a beast of a machine. I would love to see one in person one day

So the UH60 was in a remote area, and it had to be flown for maintenance? What did they do with the UH60’s rotors?

Well just call in the helicopter if you run out of fuel.😉 Seriously that is amazing but I would be concerned with the engine of the helicopter, even if it is designed for that duty. It’s just that the airplane concerns me with that weight compared to the durability and weight of the helicopter.
