The Indian Air Force on Monday inducted four Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopters. The American twin-engined helicopters are known for lifting heavy loads and can also operate in the night. It is manufactured by Boeing Vertol.
Chinook is different from normal helicopters as it can be used for loading multiple cargoes including multiple doors across the fuselage. It is very useful during disaster relief operations. A commercial model of Chinook is used mainly for fighting forest fires and supporting petroleum extraction operations.
