The Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knight is a medium-lift tandem rotor transport helicopter.
It is used by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to provide all-weather, day-or-night assault transport of combat troops, supplies and equipment.
Additional tasks include combat support, search and rescue, support for forward refueling and rearming points,
and Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel. The Sea Knight was also the U.S. Navy's standard medium-lift
utility helicopter until the early 2000s. Known colloquially as the "Phrog", the Sea Knight has been used in all U.S. Marine
combat and peacetime environments since its introduction in 1964 and as of 2011 it is still regularly flown by the Corps.
Its longevity as a reliable airframe has led to such mantras as "phrogs phorever" and "never trust a helicopter under 30".
Produced from 1962-1971 there were 524 built at a cost of $6 million each. It's uncertain how many are still airworthy and flying today.


This Helicopter is made from Busch Beer Cans but can be made from any 12 or 16 oz beverage Cans.
