    Video Vietnam war helicopter aviation: ACH-47 "Guns A Go-Go"

    I think I'll use the opportunity to resurrect the old series of threads about helicopter aviation of the Vietnam war era that I had started over at years ago. So, without further ado "Guns A Go-Go": The ACH-47 was a try to evaluate if CH-47 "Chinook" helicopters could be used as...

Narrow gauge French engines with a shrill whistle that could he heard for a long distance. No air brakes - there were actual brakemen who ran along tops...
