Exterior recordings from a CH-47D Chinook that was performing fire fighting duties during the summer of 2017. Recorded at a quiet airport with zero ambient background noise. The collection includes arrivals and departures while refueling. A single hand-held Schoeps MS set with a MK41 Mid microphone and MK8 Side microphone was used at multiple distances. A Sennheiser MKH8040ST XY microphone set was used for the APU (Power Unit).
The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is an twin-engine, tandem-rotor, heavy-lift helicopter developed by American rotorcraft company Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Rotorcraft Systems. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters. The CH-47D shares the same airframe as earlier models, the main difference being the adoption of more powerful engines.
Being near this machine while it’s lifting off is thrilling to say the least. The wind gusts it produced almost knocked me over a few times. With the Schoeps MK4/MK8 MS Microphone in my left hand and my iPhone in my right it was tough to stay steady and standing until it was a few hundred feet in the air. Feel free to watch the video!
