Here is an Apache AH1 airborne above an AH-64E at Wattisham earlier this year. Horribly backlit as per normal here at that time of day and year.

So, a question - and apologies if I am being dense or am behind the eight ball here......

Are these ZM serialised Apaches new build machines or are they the old Ah64D models that have been recycled upgraded and given new serials (like the Nimrod MR4s would have been)?
Its gonna rain, its gonna rain till the levee breaks, a tidal wave of fear and pain washes us away, another fight into the night until nothing else remains, how do we find harbour from the Hurricane?

The AH-64Es with the ZM serials are new-builds with some parts taken from the old AH1s that have been reduced to produce in the US.

ALL AAC Apaches are new builds, whether ZJ or ZM serialled.
