To give an idea of the size of these helicopters, they measure 30 meters long and weigh more than 20 tons.

The CH-47 Chinook is an American twin-engined, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter developed by American rotorcraft company Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Vertol (later known as Boeing Rotorcraft Systems).

The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters. Its name, Chinook, is from the Native American Chinook people of modern-day Washington state.

The first flight was on September 21, 1961. Currently still in production, over 1,200 have been built as of 2012. Unit cost is US$38.5 million dollars. (Wikipedia)
