The NZ Herald reports on how the sale of the Skyhawks is expected to raise around $120 million.

I suspect I am not the only one who upon hearing on election night that a plane was threatening to fly into the Sky Tower, though “Damn wouldn’t it be useful to have not abolished our combat wing”.

My other thought is that Labour have this twisted logic that you can not afford tax cuts because every cent of the operating surplus is needed for capital expenditure; hence using their twisted logic the sale of the Skyhawks means you can now afford tax cuts.
