Mavcom chief Gen (R) Mavcom executive chairman Tan Sri Abdullah Ahmad
Couple of my Uncles know him and of him as 'Dollah'.
Bloke was a damn good and quite daring helicopter pilot in the RMAF and well liked by one of the air force chiefs.
He was thus groomed for advancement in the RMAF, switched to F5E fighters (the ones ex Major Zaidi of DAP flew), kept rising up in the ranks and eventually became Chief of the Air Force himself.
Blunt and straight talking, he was also a favourite of Mahathir, wakakaka. Like most military officers, he didn't overtly take sides in politics while he was in the air force. Because of his reputation as a hawkish general, he kept rising in the echelon.
It was ONLY when he was about to retire from the air force that in his farewell message he advised air force personnel to vote for the BN, wakakaka again. He caused quite a stir then for being political even when he was one step away from retiring to become a civilian.
At one time my Unc heard of him being the Director of the Civil Aviation Department. Obviously, the government kept his considerable services and experience by putting him as Boss of MavCom.
I sure would like to see what Mahathir will do regarding Anthony Loke's complaint, wakakaka, as our general (retired) has been a favourite of Mahathir.
