‘The Independent’ Newspaper

‘Retired’ Falklands veteran flying Afghan helicopter

Article written by ‘The Independent’ newspaper back in Sept 2009, detailing Chris’s time spent in Afghanistan working alongside the amazing Lt Cdr Bill O’Brien whilst commanding the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter: Retired Falklands veteran flying Afghan helicopter

A Falklands veteran has come out of ‘retirement’ to fly helicopters in Afghanistan – despite his comrades’ jokes that he struggles to run to the aircraft.

Lieutenant Commander Bill O’Brien, 54, a Royal Navy Reservist has volunteered for the tour with 633 Squadron Army Air Corps, flying an Apache attack helicopter.

Lt Cdr O’Brien’s Co-pilot and gunner Captain Chris Vosper, 31, said flying with the elder statesman of the Squadron was “Awesome. It is a privilege. Bill is a very experienced pilot and we have become a good team.

“I am the Squadron Operations Officer which is a very busy appointment and Bill offloads a lot of the hassle and the peripherals before each flight.

Capt Vosper joked: “He is very good and patient; his age isn’t a factor – he just gets more respect because of his experience. It is just a shame he is so slow running to the aircraft! I think his Zimmer gets in the way”.
