I live just down the road from where the apaches are based, those fekkers are always buzzing over < 100ft!
I used to work in the MOD in IT support back in 2004 . One of the guys i supported was a test pilot for the new apaches and regardless of how many
times we asked him he'd always say no when we asked for a ride in one
He hold us a funny story once tho. Apparently the first thing the army did when they recieved the apaches was rip out the existing engines and replace
them with Rolls Royce engines. Unfortunately though the RR engines wearnt suited to being mounted in the same way as the existing engines (45 degree
angle or something) which resulted in them p*ssing oil as they attempted to take off.
