One wonders what they intend to do with the uniform now that they have retrieved it.

I heard that the family of a pilot who died suddenly was refused permission to bury him in his uniform by the airline he worked for. Don't jump to conclusions, not the one you're thinking, it's a regional.

Personally I'd have buried him in it. It's not Kenya after all. What could they do?
