Here is a CRAZY STORY.....

    It involves hiding the actual ownership of Airplanes.

    The story really doesn’t give a ton of details but there’s enough information to form an opinion if you choose to do so.

    I have a minor interest in “airplane ownership” and it just so happens that the little Texas town in the story is less than 15 miles from my home.

    I found the story very curious, and interesting, I’ll be looking for more info soon.

    We can’t get political here but we can discuss our opinions on stuff like this.

    If you’re willing to read the story, I’d be curious to hear your opinion.


    Short version:
    Town with population of less than 2000 people, and has NO airport of any kind, has over 1000 planes registered with 2 addresses listed.

    Hmmmmmmm

  • That is absolutely insane, especially in the post 9/11 world we live in. How this can even be allowed is beyond me.

    I know right.
    I’d expect a similar response from anyone that reads the story.

    And the thing that gets me is, how many more places/airplanes are there like this story described.

    Mind boggling if ya really think about it.

  • On a side note, I would love to co-own an airplane someday. It would motivate me to start up my PPL lessons again. ;)

    Something like the Diamond DA40 Tundra...If you found a group to pitch in it could be reasonable...

  • Lawyers ...... they write the rules to control the rest of us. Then they come up with workarounds for those willing to pay for exceptions to their rules. They're the authors of currency and property laundering and facilitators of secrecy. The article is among hundreds of thousands of similar stories.

    What's crazy is that active practicing lawyers make up only about four tenths of one percent (0.4%) of the American population. And yet, they compel most of the rest of us to willingly do their bidding.

    As a note worthy exception, by way of response to the above side note, there are alternatives to airports as demonstrated by Steve Harvey ..............
