The transition has completed a good US-Korea bilateral cooperation

US Army 4th Battalion (Attack Reconnaissance), 2d Aviation Regiment (4-2 AVN), 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade (2 CAB), performed last flight of an AH-64D Apache in South Korea as they completed transition to the new Boeing AH-64E V6

US Army, February 20, 2022 – PYEONGTAEK, SOUTH KOREA by Cap. Frank Spatt and Spc Oscar Toscano – Soldiers from 4-2 Attack Reconnaissance Battalion prepared the last AH-64D Apeche for its final flight and turn in as we complete fielding of the AH-64E v6 on 16 February, 2022, Camp Humphreys, Republic of Korea.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to fly the Alpha model as well as various versions of the Delta model,” said LTC Peter Schmitt the 4-2 Attack Helicopter Battalion Commander.

“This AH-64E v6 is far superior to prior generations when you take into consideration its lethality, its survivability, its performance and its maneuverability. This might look like an Apache aircraft, but its capabilities far exceed its predecessors. It is a different attack helicopter, not only from its prior generations, but frankly against a near peer or peer threat.”

The final flight was operated by LTC Peter Schmitt and CW4 Steve Bennett.
