California Army National Guard aviation mechanics with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 126th Aviation Regiment out of Stockton, Calif., field-repair the auxiliary power unit, a smaller jet engine, on a CH-47D Chinook helicopter at the Rocky Fire Helibase near Clear Lake, Calif., Aug. 1.The rare field-repair and replacement of an APU can take anywhere from four to six hours. The engine weighs close to 75 pounds and without having the proper hoist in the field, requires at least three people to lift and hold it in place during installation.This particular Chinook has flown for the California National Guard since 1987 and presently uses a Bambi Bucket to drop water over California’s wild land fires.
