While at the
Wing Nuts Flying Circus EAA Chapter 1405 Fly-In
down in Tarkio, Missouri this summer, I was afforded the spectacular opportunity of going up in a Chinook CH-47 helicopter operated by
139th Airlift Wing of the Missouri Air National Guard
. They were at the show to thrill the crowds, do a little recruiting, and--- let some guys jump out the back at about 10,000 feet.
