This is an old VRML simulation replay I created back when I worked in the Helicopter Flight Dynamics group at DSTO, Melbourne. It demonstrates the dynamic response of a CH-47B Chinook helicopter with an externally slung Medium Maintenance Shelter (MMS) load undergoing a simple manoeuvre. The coupled-body dynamic simulation was performed in Matlab and then exported to VRML for visualisation. More details are available in my report.
If you are using OS X Safari with the FreeWRL plugin, be warned that clicking the following link, which contains the embedded VRML, may hang your system! I have not had any such problems under Windows :/ On a Mac, I suggest using instantplayer and loading the direct link instead.

You will need a VRML Plugin, like Cortona 3D Viewer to view the model. Click on the helicopter or load to start the replay. Page Up / Page Down keys within the viewer will change the viewpoint or use the mouse to navigate.
Alternatively, you can see a video animation of model below:
