Post subject: A unique CH-47

I'm posting this here since it's not really the right subject on the AFV or Artillery thread and I think there are some of you who might appreciate her rarity. I didn't know any were left.





"Birth Control" Laughing , obviously before the pre-PC Army.

I have a few more images besides these.

Joe,
I'd sure like to see you pics. I'm aware that guns-a-go-go had only four ships. At least one crashed (in air or on-ground), one was destroyed by mortar fire, and the other a shoot-down, IIRC.

GAGG has their own website...

gunsagogo.org/

I think you have my new email by now. If not PM, as I moved four months ago.

Thanks for posting!
D.

Ahh, ta.
Dealt with Boeing for many years and never heard of them referred to with that extension.
Although it was for the more commercial side I guess.
747's and such.

Well done for finding the thread Slow!
lol
Seen my share of Chin's* as I go by three of their bases and Salisbury Plains fairly regular.
Hope that guy's got a rear view mirror.

(*Chinooks - not what keeps Piney's jaw from flappin' down onto his chest. Smile )

Surprisingly, there are actually a couple of videos on Youtube on "Guns-a-Go-Go"....

The first one seems to focus on "Easy Money".
