For more than 50 years, the CH-47 Chinook has been the workhorse of the U.S. Army, moving troops, fuel, supplies, and equipment wherever they are needed-on the battlefield and in disaster areas. The CH-47 played a central role in combat in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf, and today's modernized Chinooks are expected to serve U.S. and international forces for at least another two decades. This book from Boeing Press tells the story of the Chinook helicopter with informative text and exclusive color photographs from the Boeing archives. More than 100 pages cover the origin of the CH-47, its growth, and new versions being built for use well into the future. Hardcover with dust jacket. 104 pages. Measures 9" x 9" x 0.5". By Carrie Kipp Howard (author), Cass Weaver (designer). Published by Boeing Press (2015). Printed in USA.
