Prince Harry on a Training Exercise for Apache Helicopter Pilots in the USA
Captain Harry Wales prepares his Apache helicopter prior to a training mission in the USA.
Exercise Crimson Eagle is the final conversion training for Army Air Corps Apache pilots, the first part takes place in Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro, California before moving to Gila Bend in Arizona for the live firing phase. The terrain for the exercise is very similar to that of Afghanistan, making it extremely realistic and demanding for the pilots.
The pilots have completed 12 months training to get to this point.Photographer: Sgt Russ Nolan RLC
