The real Ch-47 Chinook Helicopter thing in action

The CH-47 Chinook helicopter has been around for nearly 50 years.

Things that make it amazing: Twin 60-foot rotors give the helicopter amazing stability and lift,  it can carry up to 28,000 pounds of cargo either inside or by its exterior hooks. Handle up to 33 seated passengers, 37 people total with the crew. It has two gas turbine engines producing close to 4,000 horsepower. Around 1,000 gallons of fuel that give it a range of over 400 miles. Lack of a tail rotor makes it more stable in windy conditions and also allows for a rear cargo ramp as seen in the video.

The rear cargo ramp makes more things possible then just about any other aircraft. For example, the CH-47 can hover over water and a boat with the crew onboard can drive right into the cargo hold for water extraction, like this video demonstrates.
