No stencils or markings on the control unit of the M134D.

Probably not the correct model of the Chinook (Dutch 47D), but at least it's an entertaining clip with a few nice cockpit-shots....

I liked that video as well, although I would question the decision to land the Chinook so close to the "enemy" vehicle. If it were laden with explosives, it could have easily ruined the -47 crew's day, not to mention all the soldiers inside.

Of course, I don't speak Dutch(?), so I may have missed the purpose of that exercise entirely, if so, color me embarrassed. scuse_me


Afterburners are for wussies...hang around the battlefield and dodge tracers like a man.

It's indeed Dutch. The exercise was to block the vehicle and capture four important figures. Since people "high-up" have others brainwashed to blow themselves up, there was probably a very low chance of active explosives. Grenades would have been a possibility though.

A - Circular knob which rotates left/right and sprung loaded to center is the pilot control for 'hoist in/out', that's the old winch/hoist which comes out of the right side heater closet and can be rigged to winch through the center hatch, not the newer external hoist you see mounted outside the right crew station.

B - 5 position knob to select which cargo hooks (fwd, center, aft, tandem, all) are opened when the cargo release is activated.

C - 3 position switch (off, on, emerg) to enable hydraulic power to the rear cargo ramp or enable the emergency pilot ramp controls on the same panel.

D - The actual FADEC control panel forward of the ECLs.

If your ride was in the 80s I'm guessing the aircraft was fitted with the older 712 engines which didn't have FADEC, Can't remember what switches were in front of the ECLs where the FADEC panel is now, it's been a while.

Cheers,

- Horsey


Hey, that makes sense! It would have been "C" that came off, now that I think about it. We were helocasting off the back ramp and the right-hand pilot broke that knob off right after they dropped the ramp when we were approaching the drop zone.

Thanks! I've always wondered what that control did.

Awesomeness!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Currently the Chinook is not a flyable aircraft. The Longbow is the priority (obviously) but once the Target Range is out there the Chinook will begin to move up the priority ladder.
