1973:two Ap­point­ment of

Ja­maicans, An­thony K. Phillips and Rus­sel Beek, to the po­si­tion of cap­tains with Air Ja­maica is an­nounced by Cap­tain Bert Palmer, vi­cepres­i­dent of flight op­er­a­tions at the air­line. “These young high­ly­trained Ja­maicans, with more than a mil­lion and a half miles to their credit, bring to their new com­mand po­si­tions a wealth of fly­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with more than 10,000 fly­ing hours be­tween them.” 1989:aban­dons Michael Man­ley says the Gov­ern­ment in­tends to main­tain the fixed rate, which puts an end to the bid­ding, but re­tains the other ba­sic fea­tures of the auc­tion sys­tem. 1995:re­moved Cal­laloo is

from the list of food items ap­proved for pre-clear­ance from Ja­maica to the United States. The Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture says that this mea­sure was im­ple­mented since Septem­ber 15 be­cause of pests which plague ship­ments of cal­laloo. The re­moval of cal­laloo from the list is tem­po­rary. Mean­while, cal­laloo may still be shipped to the United States to be in­spected.
