APACHE mechanics keep longbows flying
WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo.-- U.S. Army Specialist Jonathan Reed, 1-135th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion AH 64D Apache Longbow crew chief, inspects the tightness of a bolt on the rotor blade of on an AH 64D Apache Longbow, Jan. 16. Reed’s job requires constant vigilance and attention to detail because one loose bolt can possibly cause an Apache to crash, and therefore, be the difference between life and death for pilots.
