    He was a great man. Man of very rare kind. Many senior politicians in many Governments did not understand how to make use of his talents. They were only talking about security threats.

    Yes this is the exact plane that was taken from Chandran Ratnam and subsequently returned to its rightful owner after confiscation and now handed over to the air force.

    The late Mr.Ray Wijewardena was a genius. He was the originator of the 2 wheel hand held tactor ( the orignal Land-master) , which is now popular in all developing countries. Besides that he built his own helicopter.
