Arctic helicopters - US Army base Fort Wainwright - Alaska

Postby sovietjet on Wed 24 May 2017, 5:13 am

Located in Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright is home a to large amount of US Army helicopters. The 1-52nd Aviation Regiment operates UH-60s and CH-47s. The 1-25th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion operates AH-64s and Gray Eagle UAVs. I had the opportunity to visit them last year and with some delay, here are some photos from the visit. Unfortunately not too much flying then, but Apaches with skis are pretty cool. In fact, everything there has skis :biggrin:

Nice set of pics, visited there in Jun '96, no UAVs or AH64s but managed to get a trip out in the mountains in a CH47.
