Apache in Lincs field rescued by 3 regiment

Looks like they had a sunny day for manoeuvres in the field.

I can not believe the RAF missed an opportunity to come lift the Apache out of muck for the REME guys.....but then it is the Army , shovels, mud, and strong. backs.....seems a natural fit somehow.

I suspect no-one from the Army wanted to go cap in hand to the RAF

Rather odd to be coming back from a training mission still with some bombs and bullets on board.
