Two AH-64D Apache Longbows from Task Force Comanche, 4th Combat Aviation Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, flying side-by-side launch flares during a mission near Shindand Air Base. The AH-64D Apache is responsible for most of the air weapons team coverage in Afghanistan, such as the coverage of an emergency air extraction mission Oct. 2, 2010 that resulted in four Apache pilots and one task force commander receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross March 22, 2011 in recognition of their heroism, valor and lack of hesitation.
