On June 6, 1997 the AH-64A was officially added to the RNAF. The demonstration team was formed in 2002 but from 2005 - 2009 the team had been halted because of operational duties but in 2010 the solo-team was reformed. In 2010 the Royal Netherlands Air Force's AH-64D Apache Longbow Solo Display Team is serial Q-19 c/n DN019. The Apache Solo Display Team pilot and helicopter are from the 301st Apache Squadron "Redskins" based at Gilze-Rijen AB. The nickname "Redskins" is derived from the old 314th Squadron "Humphrey the Indian".

Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for an advanced attack helicopter, the AH-64 was first flown on September 30th, 1975. Called "The Apache," this formidable helicopter replaced the AH-1 Cobra as the principal attack helicopter for the US Army. At the time of its introduction, the Apache was revolutionary, with an innovative helmet mounted display and improved crash survivability. It is heavily armored and has been called a "Flying Tank," not only because of its defenses but also because of its ability to inspire fear on the battlefield. The Apache has become a symbol of Army airpower, serving in both Gulf Wars and in Afghanistan.
