“quotes friends of the couple as de­scrib­ing Mr Ship­ulin as a for­mer Rus­sian air force pi­lot..” That in­for­ma­tion is ab­so­lutely un­true, Yuri Ship­ulin has never been a Rus­sian AIR FORCE PI­LOT, he was just a mem­ber of the Fly­ing club in his home­town and had a light avi­a­tion pi­lot li­cense. Once he even men­tioned that he’d had a meet­ing with the “min­is­ter for civil avi­a­tion” as he de­scribed when he came to Fiji for the very first time andt hey had a con­ver­sa­tion about open­ing a Fly­ing Club there.
