CH-47 Chinook Helicopter Technical Reports



             Would you believe there are folks out there actually trying to charge for these materials that are readily available for free from public domain government data bases on the Internet?

             In this section one will find various technical reports, papers, and other items concerning the CH-47 that are available in the public domain. Although most are rather dated - many poor quality copies of the original - they give the reader a sense of the processes used to develop the Chinook helicopter into what it is at present. We suggest one select "Right Click" and "Save Target As" to download the .pdf files to the local computer before opening them to read. Another option is to open the files in a new tab by selecting "Open in New Tab". Several files are quite large.



             Should anyone out the in Hooker World have a better copy of any of these files, or have information you would like to contribute, it would be very much appreciated if you would contact us at:
