Chinook


Driving by the airport in McKinleyville today I saw a Boeing CH-series Chinook helicopter doing maneuvers over the tarmac.  Sometimes they just hovered in place and then slowly forward and backwards.  They never went above about 50 or 60 feet while I was watching them.  I have always been fascinated by these helicopters because of the double rotor design. 

I can't say who was operating the helicopter but maybe the Coast Guard, which has a station at the airport, was taking it for a test drive.  Logging companies also use these helicopters because they have the ability to lift up to 28-thousand pounds and can go where no truck can go.
