Gee Wayne, it's not like you are in dire financial circumstances like the rest of us here in the metro Detroit area. Sounds like Mister Newton is willing to throw away a $2 million dollar plane because he is miffed. He needs to get a reality check or he could of donated it to emergency effort to get supplies to those who actually do have troubles.

Doesn't surprise me none. Michigan is the dumping ground for all of Ontario's garbage. why not add Wayne Newton's throw-away plane to the mix?

I find it hard to believe that it is "rotting away"
when it is made up of stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, chromoly tubing and super alloys.

Someone mentioned the Airport should get legal right to the plane and then market it to be used in the movies. Now that is an idea that makes sense.
It has also been mentioned that particular plane has a bad safety record so likely Wayne N found something better, but is does appear that his abandoning a plane is reckless.

Not surprising behavior from a man that sounds like a woman, takes lots of testosterone and had himself "surgically adjusted" so as to look more manly after Johnny Carson "called a spade a spade" and ticked him off.

Don't believe everything you read - the press just writes whatever they want whenever they want regardless of whether they have checked it out or not....leave the man alone

Wayne Fan ... the story is 100% true. Wayne also refused to pay the company for the interior work that was done. Wayne's plane has been at the airport since 2003, and has not flown since. Unless the engines are completely overhauled (costing upwards of $1M), it cannot be flown out of the airport. The plane is not even worth $1M. Face it, he's a deadbeat.

Also, if you drive Highland Road (M-59) past the airport in Waterford, you can see the plane sitting there. At one point the door had fallen off, and had to be welded back on.

To bad there isn`t a way to cut it up, and ship it via rail or truck, and dump it at his door step. The guy stiffed everyone and got away with it....well so far. But you would think the lawyers and courts would be acting on this, and forcing Newton to cure the situation in one way shape or form. Are people afraid to go after him?.... Wait... MOB? SORRY!

Sorry - you are very wrong!- it is the same all the time - the man is one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met and known and he does so much for everyone - but no you never hear that reported - all everyone wants to see and hear is the crap like this - you don't hear how many times he has gone over and helped our troops beginning with Vietnam right up until Iraq - he does so much for others and has done a lot to make Las Vegas what it is today -

Why does it appear you are the man himself, and refuses to say it openly? DUH! I fail to see the connection you are making here, or in your other postings, where you claim people are wrong about who he stiffed. YOU must be da man himself.....trying to cover your butt! Pay up. Own up.
