The CH-47F Chinook is a military grade helicopter that has a top speed of 196km/h (196 mph). The cost for one of these helicopter is more expensive than an entire train (not including the tracks), which is a little over 35 million dollars. It weighs 33,000 pounds and has a maximum payload of around 10,000 pounds.

The engineering structure of this helicopter allows it to make sharp quick turns. The tow copters of the top are to gain altitude faster and go quicker than helicopters with only one.
