Maybe with all these riders we should be looking at a CH-47. Slower, but roomier.

Believe it or not, the Chinook is the fastest helicopter in the inventory! We hate escorting those things because they're too fast for us in straight and level flight!

I was speaking in Swavay and De Boner speak, that is what I was trying to say.

 

I know. I'm not as refined as you.

That's all I did for 10 of my 15 month deployment was fly chalk 2 behind the 'big dumb animal.' They look like a frog under goggles when ya look at 'em from behind. They are the fastest bird in the inventory but they seem to lack a certain amount of 'common sense' when it comes to flying. It was quite an experience flying with them as often as I did, very eye opening into another world so to speak.

I have a little over 20 hours in the front of "G" and ECAS models, which includes a couple of hours of range time.

 

Seems that CG requires a pilot in the front seat, and a unit I was in was shorthanded on pilots...

 

And I've ridden in a Chinook once. That's enough.

You weren't flying days were you? when I was there, they never flew anything but night missions. I hated flying behind them when we did because the uncovered engine exhaust would blind your goggles.

Took my grandson to a memorial flight to see helicopters. As a 4 year old he was awsome. Didnt want to play on it like the other kids. He wanted to see all the good stuff. Future pilot maybe?

OK, now we can quit making fun of all of our aircraft, now we have a new aircrft to make fun of. Wing-ging-ging-ging-ging-ging

 

Nothing like seeing a young boy excited about helicopters. Foster that in him and some day he can join the ranks of the few, the proud and join this board and tease other helo pilots!

With the exception of a few flights it was all goggle flying.

Memphis,

Man what timing! I needed a shot of the old style OH-58A cockpit as a ref for a model I'm building. You wouldn't happen to have any others of the cockpit would you? Thanks for posting that shot!
