2x Apache helicopters on lorries on A12

Post by Mark 57 » Fri May 03, 2024 6:50 pm

Hi all
Seen yesterday (2/5/24) were two Apache helicopters travelling southbound on the A12 south of Chelmsford, Essex. Would anyone have an offer for the serial numbers please? Time noted was approximately 10:10 am.

Any help gratefully received

Thanks

Mark

Wonder if they were superfluous AH-64D going in the bin?

Posted by School of Army Aeronautical Engineering on Twitter. Date matches, so suspect it is these. Can’t help with serials though. SP

Thanks for the replies. Stellaproblem, I watched the video and that is basically how I saw them on the A12 with the other vehicles. I was wondering if it was worth writing to them to see if they would oblige with the serials.

Hi Mark,

Couldn’t hurt. They have 6 now and the first delivered was ZJ223 last year, so you can strike that off as not being one of yours:

And this list suggests they weren’t one of ZJ189 or ZJ191:

I found a phone number for Lyneham and spoke to a woman there and told her what I wanted to know, and why, and she said she would get back to me. I gave her my phone N° and Email address but I have not, so far, had a reply. I did mention that other info about aircraft there was available on the net and she promised to look into it for me.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Mark
