You are correct, Mr. Meister. Muddle-headed math on my part – transposed kilos and pounds in my head. At 45+ tons per, each of those tanks is actually around 100,000 pounds. A pair of utility-class 234 Chinooks, combined, could handle 102,000 pounds maximum gross weight -- but only about half that for precision work. As unlikely as the scenario would have been, it's fun to imagine the visual of four Chinooks migrating back and forth from Hamilton Harbour to Carlingview.
