You know with the Chinook's large cabin, ability to hold a bunch of people/associated crap, ability to settle into the water and wallow around like a fat duck, the USCG would like it for rescue and etc.
So, Bobby...being the calculating trained warrior NCO that you are.  Take the appropriate action, Execute!

That's a definite improvement for Chicago - Flying Hookers!  Now, if you'd slide down S & SW a few clicks from that location with a mini-gun and do some community service it'd be much appreciated.  Finish that run off with a trip to city hall and county offices..........

Yes, IR looking at a FLIR screen.

The green is looking through NVG's, probably PVS-14's or maybe ANVIS-6 gen4

We can get one time approvals for higher gross weights for short duration. But I'd think Rosie would nearly wreck a perfectly Chinook...Just look at what she did to hollywood!

Well, hollywood  is a little more than short term to canada, but there are priorities. Maybe a C5 as the 17 would to small.

Have you noticed with the little O going out fly overs for public events have started again.

Roger that!
Obama's as commander in chief stressed the importance of operational commanders having a green base (Which has nothing to do with killing folks)

Trump is all about efficiency. A strong and lethal military (Which hasn't killed anything in the past month) broadcasts a not so subtle message. That is strength! (And a willingness to look for any reason at all to kick your a$$)

Flyovers are an expression of power and strength. Something which our outgoing CIC was always ashamed of (Because his muslim doctrine tells him to be loyal only to Islam)
Well, that's my country boy take on it.

He doesn't own them anymore. When he owned the Casino on Jersey shore, he would fly folks from the airport to the casino in those BV-234's. Note that the civilian only Chinook has a bunch of passenger windows. It carries 44 folks, has a lav and baggage storage. Those birds were sold to the Chinese I believe...
