Boeing Vertol CH-147 Chinook helicopter, CFB Edmonton, ca 1978, (the best jump ship of them all in the author's opinion).  Note the shark mouth taped on the nose by 450 Sqn crew based in Edmonton.  These helicopters were sold to the Dutch, who took our guys up with them in Afghanistan a few years before we bought another batch.

Canadian Forces Parachute Team, CH-147 Chinook jump.  The author looked up to catch John Glover on the left, Rick Guthrie in the middle, Pat Turpin on the right and Al McGee in the rear on a formation exit from the CH-147 Chinook.  There were no slow pokes on this exit, nice clean and tight formation!
