A retired pilot, of the Ghana Air Force, Air Commodore Kwame Pumpuni has revealed that there is no evidence that former President Jerry John Rawlings flew a plane under the Adomi Bridge.
According to him, it was humanly impossible to fly a plane under the Adomi Bridge,emphasising its size and nature of construction.
Speaking on the recent incident involving one of Ghana Air Force’s planes on Accra-based Dadi FM hosted by Abena Opokua Ahwenee and reported by MyNewsGh.com, the retired pilot insisted that the 1979 story of Rawlings’ exploits with a plane under the Adomi Bridge was completely untrue.
His revelation brings to rest the raging argument as to whether the former military leader did the unthinkable by flying under the bridge that was refurbished some years ago.
The story of former President Rawlings flying under the Adomi Bridge is a story that continues to be told after decades.
A story which is usually told to emphasize Rawlings’ exceptional skills as a pilot.
Former President Rawlings has a reputation for extraordinary competence as a pilot and many till date refer to him as flight lieutenant with pride.
