Building The AH-64D Apache Block III – Fast

Boeing Logo The AH-64D Apache Block III is the latest update to the flagship attack helicopter. The Block III brings more powerful engines, new rotor blades for increased payload and speed, a major avionics upgrade – including the ability to control unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from the cockpit, and other changes. UAV control means the Apache crews can send a UAV out to scout ahead and designate targets without exposing the Apache itself to the enemy. Boeing put together a time lapse video of the first Block III Apache being assembled – from start through first flight.
