The eagle has landed!
The army helicopter pilot arrived at a naval air field in El Centro, Calif., on Thursday. He will be spending about a month there before heading to Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field in southern Arizona.
Capt Harry Wales, as he is known in the Army Air Corps, is abroad for training known as Exercise Crimson Eagle, in which he and otherApache helicopterpilots will hone their attack skills.
It’s not just the pilots who come out to the States: Harry will have support staff, command crews and others training alongside him.
