Prince Harry has stunned instructors on his Apache helicopter course in America by coming top of the class.

He is currently taking part in Exercise Crimson Eagle, which gives Army Air Corps pilots vital experience in live firing exercises on vast military ranges in the south western United States.  It hosts Allied troops throughout the year because the hot, dusty conditions there replicate Afghanistan, where Harry will return to frontline action next year.
