297 – Flying the AH-64 Apache
Guest: Caleb Marheine Host: Markus Voelter Shownoter: Alexander Grote
In mid-September I drove to Illesheim Army Airfield to meet with Caleb Marheine who flies the AH-64 Apache helicopter there. We talked about the helicopter’s systems, the cockpit, aspects of flying it as well as some of the missions.
