Heidelberg, Germany, August, 1979: After a two-week, 4,560-mile journey with three other CH-47C Chinook helicopters from Fort Carson, Colorado, to Heidelberg, one of the choppers lifts a rocket and launcher over the autobahn and the Neckar River in a show of deployment capability. The Chinooks' trip to Europe from Colorado was the first European deployment for the aircraft; 2,000-gallon fuel bladders placed in their cargo holds made the transatlantic crossing possible.
