Canada needs a fighter jet that matches its missions
from The Globe and Mail
"Our pilots cannot do their jobs from 15,000 feet!" the retired Air vice-marshal exclaimed. "We need our Harriers down low where they can see the enemy." It was March, 1999. The Air vice-marshal was speaking at Oxford University; the Harriers were subsonic jets favoured for ground attack missions by the Royal Air Force and U.S. Marines. And NATO leaders had just ordered their pilots to bomb Serbian paramilitaries in Kosovo while staying safely beyond the reach of their guns.
