psssst...why replace these 'aging beasts' when you simply rely on the US to do all your heavy lifting??



Canadian Armed Forces pilots have been flying Sea King helicopters for 50 years, with the anniversary celebrations taking place today and tomorrow.

That these aging beasts are still flying at all is testament to both the talents of those who have been operating and maintaining the old aircraft, and to the failings of a series of governments that have been unable to replace the tired, often grounded Sea Kings since at least 1986.

I say Canadian politicians should be applauded for the shrew political and fiscal move of not replacing these dinosaurs that should have been replaced 27 years ago! When you run to hide behind the USA whenever the going gets tough, it doesn't matter if you have aging Sea Kings or really powerful slingshots

And you will continue to go farther in debt to do so. It's just part of America's obsession with us.................keep up the good work and take 5 from the kitchen.

The sandwiches can wait!!
