Chinook Eats RPG - Keeps on Flying

Published Aug. 30, 2021

A Chinook that is on short-final for what appears to be some sort of troop extraction mission eats an RPG right to the tail ramp. The pilot doesn't waiver an inch, and just keeps on flying.


Chinooks are beastly aircraft. They're used for dozens of different types of operations throughout almost every branch of the U.S. Military. They are known for their ability to lift heavy loads, move large numbers of personnel, and believe it not, they're known for their durability.


The Boeing CH-47 Chinook was first introduced to military operations in 1958, and it was originally designed by Vertol. Originally designed to be a heavy transport aircraft, the U.S. Army initially denied the aircraft for use in operations, stating that the aircraft was simultaneously too heavy for assault missions, and too light for transportation missions. The U.S. Marine Corps still purchased the aircraft however, and adopted the CH-46 Sea Knight into its arsenal.


It wasn't until 21 September, 1961, that the preproduction version performed its maiden flight. In 1962, the aircraft was as the CH-47A, and it officially entered service with the U.S. Army. Today, it still serves as a staple in both the United States Army, and the United States Marine Corps, as one of the primary means of moving troops and supplies around any battlespace.
