We need drones, not aircraft

THE EDITOR, Sir:

If I am not mistaken, didn’t the same Andrew Holness Government already purchase a King Air aircraft either early last year or the year before for the Jamaica Defence Force, and also allocated money to a company to do maintenance and to build a hanger for it?

Now it seems the Government is selling the same thing to the Jamaican people all over again.I wish someone could look into this to make sure that there is no ‘bandoolooism’ going on.

I don’t think we need aircraft; what we need are drones that can stay in the sky for days, instead of aircraft, where they have to come down so often for fuelling and maintenance.

I believe we should get a few drones. We need to use one stone to kill two birds.
