It would have been hard to miss a giant twirlypopper like this twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift Boeing-Vertol CH-47 Chinook (I’ll say it’s a CH-47D, just because) over Civic Center’s United Nations Plaza yesterday. Mmmm. And, it’s not alone up there – there are other military birds above us as well these days.
What does the military need to lift in San Francisco? Are there any bases around here anymore?

Or maybe it’s just another military joyride above the 415?
Hard to say.
