    I wonder if he was a pedophile? In the audio, he says he’s got some screws loose and if he lands they’ll lock him up for life. His words were “a guy like me”. This little plane theft wouldn’t have resulted in too harsh a sentence, so you gotta wonder just what has this guy done?

    Im impressed actually. The dude got the engines running, taxiied to takeoff, and got the sucker in the air. Most people never could have done that.

    We just bought a crashed Q400 from Africa last month, looks like I'll be watching for another insurance auction ...

    Did you look at the initial footage of the wreckage spot? I don't think there will be much to auction off.

    No I didnt.
    We do buy damaged aircraft but we won't if there has been fatalities.

    Yeah, this guy wasn't trying to land. Not that it wasn't already clear from the ATC communications.

    I cant bring nail clippers on a plane, but apparently some dude can walk in and get one flying. A little scary.

    Just curious, does that damage the value in the used parts market or is it a sort of aviation bad luck thing?

    Every single part on an aircraft has a thorough inspection criteria written by each manufacturer. If the part passes that inspection/repair than its good to go. It's just my personal opinion not to buy anything that someone passed away in.

    There was crazy stories from ValueJet who used a lot of parts from their own aircraft that crashed in the Florida Everglades throughout the rest of their fleet.

    Just a bad JuJu thing I guess.

    The first house I bought was through an estate auction. House was in a fire, which I knew before biddingbut didnt know it killed the homeowner. I had some kind of weird shit happen in that house.

    Most impressive was his explanation on his flying - "I played some video games."

    What dots did you connect to bring pedophilia in to this?? :whoosh:

    Yeah, he had few screws loose - he stole a f@cking airplane. Despite his mental state, he still had the presence of mind to realize the consequences of his actions. It was a very public, and pretty audacious, suicide mission from a guy that wanted to go out with a bang (as it were)... No need to suggest any more weirdness to what was going on in this poor guys mind.
