Great site!
I was reviewing the tail number and wondered what became of my old ship, 6718504. She was mine through the summer and fall of 1970 along with 6718507 (507 was lost on the last day of Fire Base Ripcord (I was not on her that day)
504 was upgraded to a D model, I was wondering what the new/current tail number was and where she is now stationed. I was her FE from, I believe it was about 960 hours to when she went into the 1200 our PE in November of 70(when I left country.)
A great airship.

Served with the following units:

213th Avn. Co. (Black Cats), Korea, 1978 - 99 (67-18532) and 1983 84 (74-22278)
243rd Avn. Co. (Freight Train), Ft. Lewis, WA, 1979 83 and 1984 85 (67-18444)

It was an honor to have served with many of the finest CH-47 aircrews. I will always remember the times and memories that I spent as a CE/FE with fondness and I will never forget that: the engine is cleared to ground, we have two burnings and six turnings, and the ramp is checked in the green!!

Wow!! I just found this site. I was the Flight Engineer for 68-16003 (Balls 3) Feb - May 1972, Lane Army Heliport, Vietnam. I was with the 180th Assault Support Helicopter Company Jun 22, 1971 to Jun 22, 1972. Around 154 combat hours in 4 months. I got good & bad memories flying in Balls 3.

Glad to see what happen to Balls 3 after Lane Army Heliport, Vietnam. I look forward to getting more familiar with this web site. GOOD JOB!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel privileged and blessed to have served and crewed with the finest aviators in the world on the greatest, most versatile and longest serving aircraft the active duty Army has ever known or will know, the Chinook! Hookers are truly a unique breed of aviators, we know we are indeed fortunate to have been blessed by God himself to have been given the opportunity to soar this Beast of Burden, fortunate to crewed an aircraft so unique, so underappreciated by the Army while being looked down upon by those whose ignorance or jealousy often results in scorn or sneers at the Beast. We Hookers know the beauty of the Beast and her attributes are not appreciated by all, that our missions may not be the most glamorous, that fame and recognition often elude our exceptional and sometimes heroic efforts, yet day in and day out, in darkness or in light, in fair weather or in foul we answer the mission with You call, we haul! because that s what we do! The world may little know the sacrifices we Hookers have made and will continue to make each and every day so long as the Beast continues to fly, but the world will take note the day she is no more, for she and her Hookers have set a standard beyond reach, because the Beast and her crews are truly blessed by divinity, for God surely has to be a Hooker as well!

I tried to send an e-mail with info on CH47B 66-19098 in the B model section but I couldn't get it to go through so I'll try here. I crewed 098 in Vietnam in 1971 with the 271stASHC. The question that I'd like to answer is what unit she was with at Ft' Campbell Ky. The last time I saw her was during my 2nd enlistment in 1974. I was with the Co. C 159Avn Bn. and so was 098. hope this helps. maybe someone could forward this to the web master ans he can put it where it belongs in the B model section.
Thanks
Walter Martin
Keep on hookin
