Jernej L (Delfi) For his excellent Garage mod installer (GGMM), Txd Workshop and GXT Editor and help with fixing stuff
Oleg M for Zmodeler2
Spooky and Illspirit for ImgTool v2.0.
Everyone who took interest of the Chinook on the GTA3Forums. www.gtaforums.com
RockStar North for the game...and half making the Chinook for me :P
Anyone else I forgot to mention

Special Thanks to

Elite at Elite-Tek for the free hosting.

The rotor on the back will sometimes randomly disappear...I cant do anything about it unfortunately, Its how the game is.
Carrying Vehicles is possible, but its not the best in the world, again its due to the game.

If there are any other issues which are serious, which arent listed above, please contact me, and I will try to fix the problem.

It can only carry 2 people and most of the time the vehicle it is carrying will explode and kill you or fall out. In ym experiences with it that is.
