The Apache helicopter display team, unlike some other display teams, is not a permanent assignment; rather it is drawn from a pool of suitably qualified, experienced and operationally ready Apache aircrew and ground crew, and uses aircraft drawn from the operational Apache Squadrons.

In 2013, Captain Harry Wales (aka. Prince Harry) joined the display team and wowed crowds at RAF Cosford with a range of display manoeuvres.
