    Man, this got to be illegal! What’s the difference between this dude and an ordinary criminal?

    Salon did an article on this guy last year:

    Sounds like an interesting way to earn a living.

    I wonder if they have conversations like this.

    And there you have a demonstration that is almost mathematical…

    a bit of induction of the results here… and Haiti is shown to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere as of 1985.

    Did you see the article in the Wall Street Journal recently on a bigger company that does airplanes and yachts? This guy supposedly has repossessed 1200 airplanes in 30+ years – THESE guys have done that in 2.

    They have been everywhere lately. Seem to be a lot more relevant than the guy in this story.

    It sounds like private jet hire can be affected by the geopolitical situation on the ground, it would be advisable to take guards on planes when visiting such places!

    Man, talk about balls of steel, this guy had to have them. You don’t know what condition the aircraft is in. You have to know the aircraft’s systems intimately, and you have to be prepared to deal with some mighty scary people and a very interesting legal situation to boot. The opportunity for something to go life threateningly wrong is very high.

    If this is what he does for a job, I wonder what he does for fun?

    Wish I could tell you the number of times I’ve been in the same situation.

    Embassy staff are worthless if you ever need anything in an emergency.

    I have watched this show since it started and won`t miss a series. Where was this kind of work when I was a pilot, would have loved my job.

    I take my hat off to you Nick, your surname Popovich sounds Polish if so I am married to a Polish girl and I know how hard you work. Keep up the courage, you have one great career and I see you have your son following in your footsteps.
