At the DASC Pre-season flying display symposium, a couple of changes to the Army Air Corps displays were annouced.
The first change concerns the Blue Eagles. For 2008 the team has been reduced to a single Lynx AH7 and a pair of Gazelle AH1s. This change has been put on to the team following the acceleration of the retirement programme for the Gazelle helicopter. A full season is planned.
The second announcement was the introduction of a solo Apache AH1 demonstration. This will be only offered to few events and will start with Cosford on the 1st June. The display will then appear at Biggin Hill, Waddington and RIAT. Further displays may be conducted if operational circumstances allow.
