US Army Invades Flagstaff!

Recommended Posts

Was minding my own business, watching the dull WHU/MU game, when the house started shaking with chopper action - the US Army was flying downwind into Flag airport right over my house! Needless to say, I didn't have my camera to hand, but ran over to the airport to get a few shots though the fence.

A total of 5 X AH-64, including a Longbow Apache, 3 X CH-47 and 3 X UH-60. I couldn't see the '60s at the airport, and the others were not positioned conducive to good photography (away on the ramp, behind hangars, a 10ft fence and sun directly against...). Still, a few shots of record:

Note the name painted on one of the Apaches, and the severe weathering on one of the Chinooks. No idea where they were coming from or going to - the gc were too busy for me to want to interrupt them - but the left after refueling about an hour later.

Thanks Paul, I now have a sudden urge to build that Apache. I love the webbing hanging from the missile tubes.

Cheers,

Billy
