Prince William’s Zoom call served as a blast from the past after personnel serving in Qatar, The Gulf and Somalia were reminded of the “Airwolf’s” hand in a “huge £40million drug bust.”

The Duke earned his nickname and accomplishment back in 2008 while flying a Lynx chopper. At the time he his fellow military personnel were hunting drug smugglers hoarding £40million worth of cocaine.

This incident was brought up after one of Prince William’s Zoom callers, Damon Bell, admitted he seized about 450kg of methamphetamine in the Straits of Hormuz worth £20million.

“[It’s] only half of what you got on the Iron Duke but still nonetheless very good!” he admitted according to Express UK.

The prince was as modest as ever during the conversation though and admitted, “I wasn’t going to bring that up but I’m glad that’s still being talked about!”

“I remember being beasted by people like you Damon on the Iron Duke. The on-deck PT was always quite a fun afternoon. I think after a number of lockdowns I might need your PT skills to get back into shape again.”
