Petey the Paratrooper – Children’s Book

Scroll down to watch “Airborne: Chinook Tailgate Jump” video


In this helmet-mounted POV video you will take a ride and exit the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The Chinook aka “The Flying School Bus” (among other aka’s) was first introduced in 1962 and they are still flying today. The tailgate of the chinnok provides for an amazing exit that is the preference of many paratroopers, although we still love shuffling to the door…

Sound off and let us know if you preferred the tailgate or the door as well as your memories of jumping Chinooks as well as when and where? Wishing you all a great day month and year and as always… Stay airborne my friends!
