Apocalypse now-like scene: 10 AH-64 Apache and 6 UH-60 Black Hawk choppers arrive at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Something you don’t see every day: ten AH-64 Apache and six UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters belonging to the 1st Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment, based at Fort Hood, Texas, arrive at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, where the unit is relocating, on May 11.

The 1-229th Avn. Regt. is an attack reconnaissance battalion.

The video needs only a different soundtrack: Ride Of The Valkyries (Wagner) as in Apocalypse Now!
