Apache Over Alaska

An Army AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter assigned to 1st Battalion, 25th Aviation Regiment Attack Reconnaissance Battalion (ARB) is captured in flight over an Alaskan mountain range near Fort Wainwright.

Flying Apaches in Alaska requires the use of helicopter skis that displace the aircraft weight, preventing the aircraft from rolling over or getting stuck during a muskeg landing.
