There is a mammoth thread on the military side about an RAF CH47 crash some 20 years ago. Suffice to say, there's a big difference between Serviceable and Airworthy.

Tricky question. Are you talking standard model or one with Andover ferry tanks in the back? After that, someone needs to do a power/speed/mass calculation. Itís not a simple 450nm answer.
