Army Helo Unit Reassembles Chinook by Night, Flies by Day

Soldiers with the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade, Fort Wainwright, Alaska, steady the aft pylon as it’s lowered onto the main body of a CH-47 Chinook on the flightline, Sept. 6. The Chinook is disassembled to fit on transport aircraft carrying the helicopter over long distances. Once re-assembled, the helicopter will undergo ground runs and maintenance test flights to ensure it’s ready for operations. Photo by Staff Sgt. Kali Gradishar
