George Mirage Beotich and Glen from G.E.G Aviation Photography took a trip out to Camden, south west of Sydney, to look at the mighty CH-47D. This firefighting chopper is on loan from California and will be housed at Camden Airport for the current fire season. It carries 7,600 litres of water – which makes it the largest water based firefighting chopper in the country. The Chinook has successfully been used in the USA, working wildfires across the country.
