The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is an American twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter.
Its primary roles are troop movement, artillery placement and
battlefield resupply. It has a wide loading ramp at the rear of the
fuselage and three external-cargo hooks. With a top speed of 170 knots
(196 mph, 315 km/h) the helicopter is faster than contemporary 1960s
utility and attack helicopters. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting
Western helicopters. Its name is from the Native American Chinook people

The Chinook was designed and initially produced by Boeing Vertol in the early 1960s; it is now produced by Boeing Rotorcraft Systems. It is one of the few aircraft of that era – along with the fixed-wing Lockheed C-130 Hercules
cargo aircraft – that remain in production and frontline service, with
over 1,200 built to date. The helicopter has been sold to 16 nations
with the U.S. Army and the Royal Air Force (see Boeing Chinook (UK variants)) being its largest users. The U.S. Army plans to operate the CH-47 Chinook until 2038.[3]
