Confiscated Narco Planes for Sale

In June, the C.E.O. in National Security told News Five that government had sold four aircrafts for a million dollars.  The money was most welcome given the financial crunch and the ministry was happy to get the planes off their hands.  The aircrafts were confiscated at clandestine airstrips during drug busts. As it turns out the planes were never actually sold and are still at the B.D.F. air wing. A check with the Financial Secretary indicates that despite multiple inquiries, no one came up with the funds within the specific timeline to purchase the aircrafts.  Government is now inviting tenders for the purchase of two Gulf streams G-eleven and two Hawker even hundred A Kings which are typically used by narco-traffickers.  The aircrafts will be viewed only by appointment, and the tenders should reach the Ministry of Finance by September eleventh.  If and when sold, the winning tender will be given a date to pay and take possession of the narco planes.
