Two Marine Corps helicopters, an AH-1W "Super Cobra" attack helicopter and a UH-1Y "Huey" utility chopper, collided during training exercise near Yuma, Arizona, killing seven U.S. Marines yesterday.
The Boeing AH-64 Apache is a four-blade, twin-engine attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement, and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew. The Apache was developed as Model 77 by Hughes Helicopters for the United States Army's Advanced Attack Helicopter program to replace the AH-1 Cobra, and was first flown on 30 September 1975. The AH-64 was introduced to US Army service in April 1986. Taken at the Naval Air Facility in El Centro, California, about 60 miles from where the crash happened.
