Navy forced to use private helicopters
ABOARD HMCS ATHABASKAN - Canada's navy has hired a private contractor to fly civilian helicopters out to its ships at sea, as a way of reducing the flying pressures on the military's aging Sea Kings.
Anyone who is a regular reader of this blog is aware of my disgust at the way our military has been led and funded over the last ten years. I bring you this as another example. More ammunition for the truth.
What more can I say? It's been said already.
