That big black helicopter in full

Yes indeed, if you've got the readies then this beauty is yours for a minimum bid of £10m. Here's the bangs you get for your bucks:

You are bidding for a Pre-owned Mission Damaged AH64A/D Longbow Apache Helicopter in Civil Configuration Single Pilot I.F.R.with NVG's FLIR equipped and Media Broadcasting Facilities.For sale due to failure to procure A.O.C.insurance.

African Congo? This is pure Dogs of War stuff and no mistake.
