104

The Air Force called upon people not to use drones, kites and gas balloons in Colombo as aircraft involved in Independence Day rehearsals were operating at a low altitude, a senior official said. SLAF aircraft, mainly helicopters were being used in the morning during the rehearsals and, therefore, the public has been advised against operating any airborne objects, Air Force Spokesman, Group Captain Dashun Wijeysinghe said.

He said that SLAF personnel in mufti have already been positioned in high-rise buildings such as hotels, towers and up market residences to advice people against operating such objects.
