Texas Guardsmen bid farewell to aircraft model

Men, women and children from across Texas and the United States visit a small hangar at Ellington Field to see off the final Apache A-model in the U.S. Army. Apache 451 has a long and distinguished history, and will soon travel to Arizona where Boeing will transform it into an AH-64D Longbow. (Photo by Sgt. Jeremy Spires, 36th Inf.
