The performance includes a popular AH-IF Cobra performing an awe-inspiring routine that demonstrates the dynamic maneuverability and capability of the attack helicopter. The Cobra was developed from the Huey transport helicopter and was the first purpose-built helicopter gunship to enter military service. The Cobra was armed with an M65 TOW anti-tank missile system, M197 20mm cannon and 2.75″ Folding Fin Aerial Rockets. It was the mainstay of U.S. Army attack aviation from its combat debut in South Vietnam during 1967 until replaced by the AH-64 Apache in the 1980s and ’90s. Versions of the Cobra continue to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps and the armed forces of many nations.

 

The featured aerial program is designed for premiere air show presentations. This aerial program is a High energy, 20 minute “up close and personal”, professionally narrated performance of precision tactical and parade maneuvers that excite and stimulate the imagination. The program is distinctively different from other military demonstration teams.

 

The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation is acting to provide America’s veterans a voice with which to tell their story and the tools with which to share their legacy of service and devotion with the American public.
