Richard- the person who told me what it was (bottom of the original posted photo ) says it's the AH-64D Longbow (not WA-64) and he really knows his stuff and that's the US version.The two photographers that were  at the Exercise area alongside me today when these same Apaches flew around us  also said it was the AH-64D Longbow and explained  to me how the radar dome on the top can 'peep' above the trees without exposing the body of the helicopter, I think we can be sure it's the US version UNLESS it's just the engines that have been replaced-I'lllask him.

I got back home at 8.00pm today after spending all of the afternoon on the Salisbury Plain Exercise area and  as I mentioned,the Apache's were there up close along with the Lynx. I'll sort the photos out tomorrow.Had to endure a cold easterly too.
