The AH-64 flipped head over heels after plunging towards the water. It's not clear what went wrong ahead of the accident, but the result is one less attack chopper in the Greek Army.
Three accidents in less than two weeks has forced the Army to issue a four-day grounding of its US-based Apache and Black Hawk helicopters.
The US Army is in an interesting position with two of its marquee helicopters. Adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq have revealed that the AH-64 Apache and UH-60 Blackhawk could seriously benefit from more power than their twin General Electric engines can provide. Yet, neither chopper is getting any younger.
A potential $4.8-billion plan that would see the United States provide Iraq with latest version of the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter has fallen through, according to a report from Defense News.
