This is real, but those are two different birds. Go to this site; www.mozeyoninn.com/Air...HMH466.htm , and you'll see these aircraft, read about the unit, how the helo's were painted, and just compare the size of a Sea Stallion to a "little" Chinook that it is carrying!

Hi Folks!

I saw those photos a few weeks ago. I just figured someone had used Photo Shop or something like that to doctor the photos. I didn't think those paint jobs were real. Confused

Sgt, Scouts Out!

That isn't a Chinook. It's the 'hooks smaller cousin the CH-46.

Hey Jeff!

OOOppps, my bad.


That is a very easy mistake to make and many people do it.

The trick to telling those two Boeing aircraft apart, when you can see the landing gear, is the CH-47 has four wheel struts while the smaller CH-46 only has three. Two aft and one centered at the front.

One other way is if you know the photo is of a Marine air unit, then it is a CH-46 because they don't use (AFAIK) the CH-47.
If the photo of a Chinook looking helo is of an Army unit, that bird will be a 47 because the Army (AFAIK) never used the 46.

Hope this helps.

...and CH-47's have a noticeable protruding "nose" below the windscreen, whereas the CH-46 makes a smoother continuous slope from top to bottom. Much nicer looking than the CH-47.
