𝐒𝐎𝐌𝐄𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐃𝐈𝐅𝐅𝐄𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐓 | Trading Amsterdam for Malmö for a couple of days. I have only been in Sweden one time before; years (and years and years) ago when I was about 14 and we only drove through it on our way to Norway. So it doesn’t really count anyway.
I’m curious to see what Malmö has to offer. Any recommendations are very welcome. Also for children, since I have my two oldest boys with me.
Chinook CH-47 Royal Air Force 🚁
The CH-47 Chinook (type D and F) is a medium-heavy transport helicopter. The helicopter with the characteristic tandem rotor is ideal for fast transport of ground troops, equipment, weapons, provisions and other supplies to the battlefield. The device is now known worldwide as a multifunctional military workhorse.
The Chinook performs a variety of tasks:
transport of personnel and equipment;
operations with 11 Airmobile Brigade (eg paradropping);
special operations with Special Operations Forces;
wound transport and other humanitarian support;
search and rescue operations;
the transport of (building) material to hard-to-reach places.
The loading and unloading is done quickly via the tailgate at the rear. Larger loads can be hooked under the hull. The Chinook has a large lifting capacity. With the 3 hooks under the device an external load (slingload) up to a weight of 12,701 kilos can be transported. In the hull of the helicopter, 57 fully loaded soldiers, 10,000 kilos of cargo or 24 stretchers can be transported with people. All Chinooks can be equipped with an extra rescue winch (hoist). 🚁 #airshow#vlissingen#rescuevlissingen#wonderful_holland#netherlands#super_holland#holland_photolovers#dutch_connextion#binoculars#ig_photooftheday#ig_discover_holland#lost_world_treasures#chinook
