Andrew Tapscott, logistics officer for 6th Squadron, 6th U.S. Cavalry, 11th Aviation Regiment, shows his daughter, Jasmine, around the cockpit of one of the Army's new Longbow helicopters. Twenty-two of the new aircraft — modernized versions of the 1980s-vintage AH-64 Apaches — had just arrived at Illesheim Army Airfield, their new home; they were the first Longbows deployed to Europe.
