Trimble soldier lands Chinook for fuel stop at Dyersburg airport

Friday, November 16, 2012

On Thursday afternoon, there was a rumble in the western sky as a U.S. Army CH-47 'Chinook' helicopter approached the Dyersburg airport. This aircraft was a special op's bird assigned to Task Force, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment 'Night Stalkers' out of Ft. Lewis, Wash. It was being flown to Kentucky for some equipment upgrades. It was being piloted by Chief Warrant Officer 2 David Powell (center) of Trimble, Tenn. CW2 Powell is the son of CW3 (Retired) David Powell (right) and Detria Powell (left) of Trimble. CW2 Powell and crew planned to use the Dyersburg airport as one of their refueling stops en route to Kentucky. While on the ground they enjoyed a meal at the airport restaurant, and thanked the airport employees for their assistance.
