Chinook Profile

 

 

 

Chinook in Profile
Lithographic Print or Giclee print.

2005
 

"This image was created as a tribute to the ten years of service of the CH-47D Chinook in Army service. The second print was sponsored by Boeing Australia Ltd as a commemorative print and shows various scenes of the CH-47D on operations."

"The Chinooks of the Australian Army (with the exception of the later acquisitions) were formerly on the inventory of the Royal Australian Air Force as C Models and served with the RAAF from 1973 until 1986 whereupon they were removed from service with the introduction into service of the S-70 Black Hawk... but they were soon missed. So a deal was struck with Boeing and the US Government. The 11 C Models would  be returned to the US where Boeing would convert them to D models. The Australian Army would then have four of them returned and the balance would go to the Hawaiian National Guard."
