Eh, that will buff out.

Also, I don't think there's been an H-21 flying in years.

On the ground you can.

In the air? Well, that's a different story.

But if you've seen both flying at one time or another, you can tell the difference in the air.

Definitely CH-46 Sea Knight. The gray color is also a good indicator.

Thank you everyone for weighing in and identifying this. Slowly but surely my aircraft IQ is rising with your assistance.

Wish I'd seen this thread earlier, its right up my street.

AIM64 called it right with the CH-46, but there is some bad info elsewhere in the thread.

The CH-46 is not a version of the Chinook, it is a much earlier design created as the Vertol 107. The Chinook was an all-new follow on that looks similar, kinda like the F-35 resembles the F-22 a bit but is not the same.

The Chinook DOES have the sponsons on either side, but on the Chinook they extend all the way down the side of the cabin, rather than just jutting out at the rear. That's one of the things that makes this ID so easy. Another clue is that this helo (the CH-46) has a three-blade rotor, the Chinook has four blades per rotor.

So, there you go.

Let me ask you a few questions.

How much and at what level do you get into UFOs and conspiracy theories?
Are you able to intuitively piece together events from around the world that fit better in truth than the way mainstream media present it?

Do you experience synchronicity via numerical.555, 444,333, 222, 11:11 10:10, 12:12 etc?

Have you ever experienced military craft somewhat out of bounds of where they might normally fly? Example out in the boon docks or just happen to fly over (cross paths where you are driving) etc?

Have you ever witnessed (most of the times dark colored vehicles) blue or black. Suburbans, Tahoe s, Lincoln, Ford Sedans that your intuition said was somewhat suspicious.

But then your mind tried to rationalize that you were just being paranoid and reading into things a bit too much...that maybe you were just seeing through the filters of conspiracy theory content? When and if you have ever talked about these subjects to others around you(friend, family, or stranger) do you most commonly get a patronizing smirk or comment regarding being a conspiracy theorist, reading into things, seeing things etc?

I remember when Secret Service questioned me about something I posted on Yahoo once ( got a little negatively motivated about Bush , 911, and Iraq) I distinctly remember them asking me if I saw things?

Could also be the civilan model, Boeing Vertol 107. Columbia Helicopters uses them for logging and firefighting
