AH-64D's @ Kiwa

Fri Sep 23, 2011 10:27 pm

So I live about 9 Mi to the southeast of KIWA directly under the approach path. Since yesterday there has been a steady stream of AH-64D's and AH-64X (without Longbow dome) at intervals of about 10 mins shooting approaches into Gateway. Haven't seen this type of Apache activity that I can remember here. Tried to get a look thru my binos but couldn't make out any markings.

Cool to see nevertheless!

The AZNG has AH-64D's. Just for your SA, AH-64D is the same with or without the radome   The series designation applies to both. Enjoy the sounds of freedom.

Thanks Longbow. Loving the sound of Blackhawks buzzing my house right now at 1000ft on their way to Florence! Nice of the crew chief to wave back!

Doesn't Boeing have a mod facility at IWA?
Pilots are idiots, who at any given moment will attempt to kill themselves or others.
