A colleague of mine spent some time on the ground with 3 Apaches at a small N Wales airfield this afternoon. He says they had RAF aircrew plus RAF ground crew and support vehicles(he's ex RN so should know RAF rank slides when he sees them). Apparently preping for an 18 month overseas deployment. He's as puzzled as I as to the RAF connection. Any further info anyone? Are we losing our grip on the AH?
