For the first time a CD has flown over the skies of Afghanistan on a mission. The charity CD, ““He Drinks Tequila (And She Talks Dirty in Spanish)” which was produced in Spain in aid of Afghan Heroes Charity, was taken up in an RAF MQ-9 Reaper by 62 Squadron. The Reaper is an unmanned remote controlled aeroplane, which is equipped with cameras and missiles and is used to support troops on the ground and is capable of flying for long periods of time and ‘loitering’ around a battle zone
The CD “He Drinks Tequila (And She Talks Dirty in Spanish) was released in October this year to raise money for the Afghan Heroes Charity. Last year the group raised over 600 Euros for The Marie Curie Cancer fund. This year they have already raised more than that for Afghan Heroes which was set up by 8 mothers whose sons all died on 9th and 10th of July 2009. Details of the registered charity and its’ work can be found on www.afghanheroes.org.uk
So far the CD has sold over 400 copies locally and has also been played worldwide.
100 copies have been sold to civilians and troops working at Kandahar Air Field. The first copy of this limited edition has been received by HRH Prince Harry, and “Charlie Angels Line Dance Addicts” who have produced the CD, have received a letter of thanks and best wishes from Buckingham Palace.
“We wanted to do something unusual with the CD, and the RAF were kind enough to take 2 CDs up in the Reaper. They normally only take national flags up, and even then not very often, so these CDs are real collectors items”, said Jackie Lawson, whose husband Ian works in Afghanistan and who arranged for the CDs to be flown.
“We have a framed certificate and CD and one set that can be framed. These are so rare that I am sure that anyone who collects military memorabilia would be delighted to have it, as there are only 2 in the world!”
Charlie’s Angels Line Dance Addicts are taking bids upwards of 50 Euros for the unframed set and 80 plus for the framed set. Bids will be taken up to 24th December 2009 inclusive.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the first CDs flown in a war situation in Afghanistan in the MQ-9 Reaper. The CDs and certificates can be view at the Afghan Heroes Gala Charity Night on December 14th at Los Arcos Restaurante, Torrevieja.
