Captain Harry, Apache Top Gun: Prince passes gunship training with flying colours

So it looks like Prince Harry has earned his wings...

Quote:
The 27-year-old even claimed one of two best young airman awards as he qualified to crew the fearsome gunship. He is is likely to be sent to the warzone to fight the Taliban - and could go as early as this autumn. The Prince gained two passes at A-Level: a B in art and a D in geography.
Is anyone else slightly concerned that he might drop a bomb on the wrong country by accident?

It must be a bit like shooting mice with a shotgun in one of those things.

There doesn't seem to be be any/many friendly fire incidents with helicopters, probably as they go slow and have plenty of time to confirm the targets, unlike in a jet.
