Remarks: [Canon 7D + Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM] The United States Army Parachute Team (Golden Knights) C-31A, in town for The New York Air Show at Jones Beach. Special thanks to The American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport.
Remarks: Getting a thorough look over by the 4 Chinook crews. This is one of 4 Chinooks that took a battering of high winds the previous day resulting in one chinook having a rotor snapped off. See picture http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=7125373&nseq=0
Remarks: SNAP!! Check out the broken ROTOR BLADE. During high winds prior to President Obama's arrival the rotor broke off this ship. Crew were seen trying to hold down the rotors on this and 3 other Chinooks after the incident. All 4 aircraft then had an extended stay at Dublin while repairs were made but this ship left as C-17 cargo.
