I must have a limited imagination. I can think of one or two, but hundreds?

"Turn starboard to three four zero, you are two miles out from me. Prepare to drop pizza!"

What, your Dominos doesn't do airdrops at sea?
Perhaps you need to broaden your horizons!
Perhaps I used some journalistic licence!
Perhaps there are a dozen reasons for a dozen operators thus giving a gross all up!

Or mostly likely there is only one reason - to facilitate communications between maritime vessel and aircraft.

And no, there isn't any airdrops from the local Dominos outlet ; YMMV

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence
