    My instructor at A-School was former Chinook (we call em something else) Air Crew, and he said they were the biggest pieces of shit ever.

    If it's not leaking it's not flying.

    chinooks are awesome. thats all we really used in Afghan. the blackhawks have trouble in the higher parts of the mountains. chinooks handled it perfectly.

    Did they tell you in Air Assault school that the top speed of the Shithook is classified? Our instructors told us that the posted speeds on the internet are just guesses, and that the true top speed has never been posted. The shithook is supposedly the faster chopper in the US inventory.

    Do you know where the phrase "if it's not leaking it's not flying" comes from?

    lol..if its not leaking its out of fluids...just needs a top off. i don't think i've ever ridden in any marine a/c that didn't leak, 53's, 46's heuy's, 130's......

    Correct. If it's not leaking it has low hydraulic pressure and you are in for a rough landing.

    I asked some 160th Crew Chiefs at SERE but they said the same thing. Can't tell us because its classified but it definetley is the fastest bird. They also mentioned flying in Afghan and blowing by some goats flying nap of the earth and knocked them off a hill apparently...
