PLUS A TOUR OF THE CHINOOK AND V-22 PLANTS AT BOEING

The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is the world’s only in-production heavy-lift tandem rotor helicopter. Seven NATO nations are among the more than 20 worldwide with Chinooks in their inventory.

The Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing, and short takeoff and landing capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
