Chintan Mahta (left), a native of Dallas, an AH-64D Apache attack helicopter crew chief, and Pfc. Casey Ogden (back), a native of San Antonio, an Apache crew chief, all within Company C “Snake Eyes”, Task Force Spearhead, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, hook a new rotor blade to a Spydercrane at FOB Chaghcharan, April 12. The soldiers are all members of a Downed Aircraft Recovery Team that was sent to the FOB to recover an Apache that was grounded due to damage in the rotor blade. The damaged rotor blade was discovered after the Apache received fuel at the small Lithuanian run base. The DART consisted of maintainers from two companies within TF Spearhead as well as maintainers from the Forward Logistics Element, 615th Aviation Support Battalion, 1st ACB. With hard work and dedication, the mission was a success and the Apache was flown back to FOB Shindand.
