I regret to inform you of the recent passing of  Mr Aubrey Duncan(78) on November 14th 2015, Mrs Elizabeth Ambrose (McKies Hill),
Dr. Erling Harry and Bruce Hadley (Union) in England.

History was made in our homeland today as four small airplanes landed at the Argyle International Airport.  The event was
planned as part of a test of the Airport's safety and security. The Prime Minister of SVG and other dignitaries boarded the
planes at E.T. Joshua Airport and flew to the Argyle International Airport. All four planes landed safely.  Hundreds turned out
to witness the historic event. Officials of the Eastern Caribbean Aviation Authority as well as many other officials and
professionals associated with the building of the airport addressed the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The planes left ET joshua airport with the  Prime Minister and other dignataries.
