Exterior recordings from a CH-47D Chinook that was performing fire fighting duties during the summers of 2016 and 2017. This collection includes the Chinook sounds from Helicopters HD Pro. 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 MK4 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 video footage below was shot with my iPhone 6+ while standing close to a Boeing CH-47-D “Chinook” helicopter as it was preparing to depart. The audio track is from a Schoeps MS microphone rig. I was holding the Schoeps MK4/MK8 MS microphone combination in my left hand while holding my phone with my right hand. As you can see, this gigantic rotorcraft puts out a huge amount of wind. The Schoeps covered with a Rycote windscreen system held up very well. Special thanks to Billings Flying Service for letting me know when they were leaving and for allowing me to set up a bunch of microphones around their beautiful helicopter.
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.
