Prince Harry, known as Captain Wales in the military, has departed Afghanistan with his squadron after a successful tour as an Apache pilot.

He operated as part of the Joint Aviation Group which provides helicopter support to the International Security Assistance Force and Afghan forces operating throughout Regional Command (South West) in Helmand province.

Based out of Camp Bastion, the largest coalition military base in the country, 662 Squadron Army Air Corps, to which Captain Wales belongs, flew more than a hundred deliberate missions over 2,500 flying hours, providing surveillance, deterrence and, when required, close combat attack capabilities as well as escort duties for other aircraft.

Captain Wales qualified as a co-pilot gunner in February 2012. He was posted to 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, part of 16 Air Assault Brigade, to gain further flying experience and to operate the Apache on a number of exercises before deploying to Afghanistan in September 2012.
