Wiesbaden, Germany, August, 1990: Chief Warrant Officer 2 Paul R. Stein, top, and Chief Warrant Officer 2 David M. Conboy perform a pre-flight inspection of their Apache helicopter before departing for Italy and, eventually, Saudi Arabia. "We have trained in that type of environment, and it's great," Stein said of the desert destination. "There are no trees and no wires. Wires are a helicopter pilot's biggest nightmare."
