  1. Don't know where the clips are from, but it was 2-17 out of Kandahar there in 08. Also, don't forget the ladies, there was a female in C/S Banshee 69 who ended up flying CAS for a friend of mine close to FOB Hutal in May or June 08. I liked when the Apaches flew as my escort… (o_O)

    No M3P, No color VDU In theater in ‘09?

  4. Thumbs down for "music?"

    The rotor sound, rockets, and ambient noise is music enough…it lends a sense of reality only they can provide.

    Whilst the music steals some of that away.
    Great video! Please next time leave only the sounds of real life.
    Happy Thanksgiving

    I know people give the AF shit as a running joke, but these service men and women doing strafing runs 20 feet off the ground in what basically amounts to a glass bubble must have nerves of steel.

    Was flying beside one of those little birds in Afghanistan one time and the guy accidentally dropped his M4 out the hatch. We actually circled around to go retrieve it for him lol

    No offense to the 58 crews, but I always got a warm feeling when I would see an Apache show up for support.

  18. Airwolf was a far more effective aircraft.

  22. For all you military types, is part of your basic training learning to enjoy grungy early 2000s stripper music?

  27. 2007. Kiowas did CAS for us once upon getting ambushed. Saved our bacon. They also flew low over our valley to provoke the talibs to shoot when they first got in theater. They were looking for a fight. Sometimes the two crew were women. I met a pathfinder lieutenant I knew returning from the HLZ one morning. He had a huge grin on his face. A kiowa with two women pilots came to drop off recon photos to him. He told me they landed, he ran up to get the info. The pilot with her mirrored visor down, flightsuit zipper zipped down to reveal her pretty bra & cleavage smiled and handed him the photos. He said he stood there with his mouth agape as they flew away. Those crazy type-A cowgirl women pilots. Only young officers could get away with that. Made my day. True story.
