Coulson Unical Deploys CH-47D in South America to Fight Bolivian Fires
In the wake of the Amazon fires, the CoulsonUnical joint venture was fortunate enough to participate in the firefighting with the approval and support from the Bolivian government.
The journey for our CH47 299 to get to its final destination in the Amazon has been long and tenuous.
The Coulson Unical CH-47D, N47CU, was loaded onto the Antonov after a long night and morning of teardown. To fit in the airplane the blades, both the forward and rear drivetrain, and the rear pylon needed to be removed. This is a huge task to accomplish in such a short time but the team came through and will get some well deserved rest on the flight down.
This is a tremendous first for Unical — not only participating in fire fighting operations, but doing so as part of one of the biggest and most impactful fires in the world. This would not be possible without the dozens of Unical and CoulsonUnical members of this team.
