Boeing CH-47 Chinook je americký střední transportní vrtulník s tandemovým uspořádáním dvou nosných rotorů. Je přímým pokračovatelem známého typu CH-46D Sea Knight. První prototyp vzlétl 21. září roku 1961 a první sériově vyráběné vrtulníky byly dodány koncem roku 1965.

The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is an American twin-engined, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter developed by American rotorcraft company Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Vertol (later known as Boeing Rotorcraft Systems). The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters. Its name, Chinook, is from the Native American Chinook people of modern-day Washington state.
