Illustrated on this Major League Aviation™ t-shirt is the Boeing CH-47 Chinook. The CH-47 Chinook was designed and initially produced by Boeing Vertol in the early 1960s. The Chinook is an American twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. Its top speed of 196 mph (170 knots, 315 km/h) is faster than contemporary utility and attack helicopters of the 1960s. It is one of the few aircraft of that era, such as the C-130 Hercules and the UH-1 Iroquois, which is still in production and front line service with over 1,179 built to date. Its primary roles include troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and three external-cargo hooks. The helicopter is now produced by Boeing Rotorcraft Systems. Chinooks have been sold to 16 nations with the US Army and the Royal Air Force being the largest users. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters.
