Whirlwind Romance

October 2016

My military career unfolded around the awesome Boeing AH-64D Apache helicopter. Once finished with the training in the USA, I was placed at the Royal Netherlands Air Force 302 Apache Squadron and here I met the love of my life, Yasmine, an avionic technician on the same aircraft. We stayed in the Air Force for another 12 years together and even went on deployments together. So all in all, you could say Boeing brought us together!
