Comments: Great site for remanicing about my favorite subject,Chinooks.I hired on at Boeing,(than known as Vertol),in March of 1961.I worked on an H-21 test hack,and a HUP-2 test bird until the arrival of our prototype 107 from the Paris air show and a tour of europe.The first pre production 107 (modified ch46),arrived shortly therafter and I helped crew it on 2nd shift. A short time later the first ch47A arrived from the Morton plant via a truck.When it ran for the first time ,the blade de-phasing system activated and there was hellto pay as the blades struck each other and parts flew everywhere.The plane declared un-safe to fly and was made into a ground test vehical for the next 10 or more years.The first flight of a ch47 was I think in early 1962.

Comments: Hi: Good to see you back. I was trained 67U20 in 1972 at Ft. Eustis, Va. Was assigned to Germany in 72 and spent 2 years there at Finthen AAF. I initially was assigned to the 295th, which at the time was the only CH-54 (Skycrane) unit in Germany. I was at Finthen when the 205th arrived in 73. I was again transferred to another unit in the States, Ft. Carson Co. (179th)in 74, where I spent 9 months until I left the Army in 75. I worked on the Flight line team for the 179th when there. I have a website for the 295th that I try to update as I get information, although it has more to do about the unit while I was there, and nothing really after I left. Good to see you folks back online, really good to see this site, I can spend a lot of time here.
