An AH-64 Apache attack helicopter stands idle on the tarmac with Mount Rainier in the background, May 11. These helicopters will become a familiar sight around Joint Base Lewis-McChord after the 1st Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment arrived in force on JBLM, flying 10 Apaches and six UH-60 Black Hawks. The pilots made the approximately 2,200 mile trip in three days as part of the "Flying Tiger's."
