One flew over the farm the other day. There is a guard unit out of Grand Island that has one. I think it was theirs. It was headed that way anyway. I had the chance to talk to some of the guys last summer. They brought their Chinook to the farm show and let everyone go through it. Great bunch of guys. Class act. They let kids and parents get in the cockpit and everything.

heres a couple from my pic collection.

the first pic is when we landed at a FOB in eastern Afghanistan called Orgun-E.  just over the mountains that you seen in the pic is Pakistan.

the other pics are of the pilots and actual crew when I was being instructed on preflight/postflight.
