Unusual guest at Žilina Airport - CH-47 Chinook

During the flight of Slovak airspace from Romania to Germany, the crew of the US Army's Boeing CH-47 Chinook also visited Žilina Airport.

We consider the Boeing CH-47 Chinook a rarity in Slovakia. This twin-engine helicopter is famous for its successful concept of tandem mounted rotors powered by Lycoming, each with an output of 3,750 horsepower. Thanks to the wide loading ramp in the rear part of the fuselage, the helicopter allows the transport of soldiers, artillery and priority replenishment of the amount of supplies on the battlefield.
