Cariboo weighs in at ~13,000kg, less ~1500kg for the engines & say 500kg for the tail? So around 11,000kg. Chinook can lift just under 11,000kg, so pretty much maxed out!

Don't forget you have to add the downwash of the rotor blades acting on the Cariboo wings and fuselage.

Weight is one thing but the size is another, it’s bigger than the Chinny! I’m impressed and it’s not the first time a Chinnys impressed me.
