Well, if it's an environmental disaster (*) they're wanting I can't think of a better way to do it.
Funny.. I thought this reef was supposed to be a highly-protected, tourist mecca etc. Maybe the US Navy at it's most clever??
* = If you don't know what happens when you cut up a ship on a reef, google "rena disaster" to find out.
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
