Great deal eh? But the title work is a mess and it’s now a fixer upper after an unscheduled landing in Mexico and… oh, there’s a little problem of about 4 tons of cocaine on board.

This multi-million dollar aircraft was purchased for 100 bucks by 2 guys with no money from a dummy Brazilian corporation and previously belonged to an associate of……

Yup, you guessed it. George W. Bush.  

Actually this jet and another DC-9 that was busted with over 5 tons of blow have a lot in common.

Recently-released FAA records from the Gulfstream II business jet that went down in Mexico a month ago with four tons of cocaine reveal that before it was “parked” in the name of a New York real estate developer with ties to the Russian Mob, the plane was owned by a secretive Midwestern media baron and Republican fund-raiser, who had a business partner who, incredibly, owned the other American drug plane, the DC9, recently busted in Mexico.

Stephen Adams was in business with Miami attorney Michael Farkas, who founded SkyWay Aircraft, which owned the DC9 busted in Mexico 18 months ago with 5.5 tons of cocaine aboard.

Moreover at the same time the Bush Ranger extraordinaire Stephen Adams owned the Gulfstream (N987SA) in 1999 and 2000, he was personally buying over $1 million of billboard ads for George W. Bush for his 2000 Presidential election bid.…

This was soft money…Los Angeles Times

A little more Googling research reveals perhaps why Skyway Aircraft got into this fustercluck of a drug deal.

 911  and Chapter 11 Changed Everything

SkyWay files for Ch. 11 protection amidst fight over control, allegations

In press releases, SkyWay said it was focused on bringing to the market a network supporting aircraft-related service including anti-terrorism support, real time in-flight surveillance and monitoring, Wi-Fi access to the Internet, telephone service and enhanced entertainment service for commercial and private aircraft throughout the United States.

It attracted investors and raised capital through 2004, including $12 million from clients of Talib,(Nazar F. Talib) public filings show.

In November, citing a series of misleading press releases and disclosure lapses, Talib sued SkyWay and officers Brent Kovar and James Kent in Arkansas.

“SkyWay intentionally or negligently failed to disclose to plaintiff Talib and his clients that SkyWay did not possess such technology and that it was simply in the stage of testing to determine whether in fact it could provide such services to commercial airliners at all,” the complaint said.…

Surely Skyway President Brent Kovar is a sharp enough guy to know this is not a good business plan.  Heck, he was appointed as Chair of The Business Advisory Council….

Congressman Tom Delay, Majority Leader, has appointed Brent C Kovar to serve as the Honorary Chairman, Business Advisory Council,” read the headline of an August 7, 2003 release from PrimeZone Media newswire and press release service.

The Business Advisory Council, explained the release, was part of the National Republican Congressional Committee, “dedicated to making sure that small business has a voice in Washington.”

Kovar was appointed “in recognition of his valuable contributions and dedication to the Republican Party,” and was “expected to play a crucial role in the party’s efforts to involve top businesspeople in the process of government reform both at the state and federal levels.”

Skyway, in a partnership with a firm called Royal Sons Motor Yacht Sales (otherwise known as just plain “Royal Sons”), purchased the DC9.


Damn, that Skyway has some serious problems for a company that started out so well by James Reynolds Bath.

Who?  George Bush says he doesn’t know him but…

Bath was a former director of Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and part owner of Arbusto Energy with George W. Bush, with whom Bath served as a member of the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War. Like Bush, Bath was suspended from flying status in 1972 for failing to accomplish his annual medical examination.


…Bath’s discharge from the National Guard and his relationships to the bin Laden family, the Bush family, and Arbusto were among the issues explored in Michael Moore’s 2004 documentary film Fahrenheit 9/11…Wiki

Fahrenheit 911…whoa that changes everything..

Come to find out that Bath was the Money Man for The Bin Laden Family

FAHRENHEIT 9/11:  James R. Bath was the Texas money manager for the Bin Laden family.

   * See Notarized Trust Agreement, Harris County, Texas, signed by Salem M. Binladen, July 8, 1976 (original document), Attachment C (“I, Salem M. Binladen, do hereby vest unto James Reynolds Bath, 2330 Bellefontaine, Houston, Texas, full and absolute authority to act on my behalf in all matters relating to the business and operation of Binladen-Houston offices in Houston, Texas.” Notarized Trust Agreement, Harris County, Texas, July 8, 1976.…

This link will also show you that Bath’s name was redacted in the Air National Guard Report that shows both he and W. were grounded for failing to show for a physical..

Gosh, I wonder why these guys didn’t show up for a simple physical…

Jeez, now I’ve forgotten what this essay is about..

Oh yeah…Cocaine

Bath was the director of Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI)


Hey, BCCI was in the news a few years ago. I wonder what The Wiki says about them…

The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was a major international bank founded in Pakistan[citation needed] in 1972. At its peak, it operated in 78 countries, had over 400 branches, and claimed assets of $25 billion.

BCCI became the focus in 1991 of the world’s worst financial scandal and what was called a “$20-billion-plus heist”.[1] It was found by regulators in the United States and the United Kingdom to be involved in money laundering, bribery, support of terrorism,[2] arms trafficking, the sale of nuclear technologies, the commission and facilitation of tax evasion, smuggling, illegal immigration, and the illicit purchases of banks and real estate. The bank was found to have at least $13 billion unaccounted for.

Investigators in the U.S. and the UK revealed that BCCI had been “set up deliberately to avoid centralized regulatory review, and operated extensively in bank secrecy jurisdictions. Its affairs are extraordinarily complex. Its officers were sophisticated international bankers whose apparent objective was to keep their affairs secret, to commit fraud on a massive scale, and to avoid detection”;[2] BCCI organized its own intelligence network, diplomatic corps, and shipping & trading companies.

Don’t care for Wiki?  Read this Time Magazine article about Bath…

One Bath entity, Skyway Aircraft, leased a $10 million Gulfstream II to the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co., which is controlled by Sheik Zayed bin Sultan an- Nahayan, the President of the United Arab Emirates and the current owner of B.C.C.I. Bath’s partners in Skyway, one of four similarly named companies he controls, are artfully hidden. The firm that incorporated Bath’s companies in the Cayman Islands is the same one that set up a money-collecting front company for Oliver North in the Iran-contra affair.…

Iran-Contra! Now this changes everything…or does it?

Let’s try to review..

Jets full of drugs

Ownership by a Bush Ranger, a Tom DeLay lacky and an ex-Texas National Guard/Arbusto/BCII Director dude with ties to Iran Contra.

Just coincidences I’m sure. Move along…shop

    Let the tin hat construction begin.

  1. in 2005 it was flown twice to Guantanomo Bay – one time from Conn. the other from NYC  – leading theory is connection of owners to CIA – makes sence to me after reading your great diary.

    Now call me a looney conspiracy theorist – but how much clear does it need to get. Clearer – ok – it goes like this:

    Rip away the veil of secrets and you’ll find that our country is being run by treasonous greedy evil people who would rather skim off drug lords and global crime syndicates while making untold hundreds of millions off the illegal weapons and black nuclear materials markets.

    Oh yeah, frankly they do not give a rats ass about the constitution and I doubt they ever read the cliff notes version.

    thanks for allowing me to get some rage off my chest

    Heck, the jet alone for $100 is awesome but when you factor in that it comes packed with Uncle Sigmund’s Peruvian Marching Powder, well…

    This is reminiscant of Iran-Contra and you’re right – what a coincidence that is.

    Nicely done!

    I just don’t feel I’ve given enough kudos to you by merely pony-ing & leaving a comment (^.^)

    Bravo Zwoof!! Excellent Essay!

    ::stands applauding::

  2. not related but it is on point as it goes to PRIORITIES

    You can’t do a power/money grab and protect this country from all foreswarn enemies at the same time. If you tried you wouold run into a hell of a conflict of interest and eventually find yourself self-prosecuting. We all make choices. LIKE THIS ONE

    I am thinking of a story that broke on this morning about a Chinese nuclear armed submarine “showing up” right in the middle – that’s right – in the middle – of a highly elaborate naval excercise intended to show off our superiority in protecting out fleet. Apparantly the Chinese sub is a new class with far superior capabilities than our very own Navy thought was possible in China. The sub trailed the fleet undetected for a significant period of time before popping up – leaving a very red faced Pentagon.

  3. It’s a good thing they aren’t in charge of anything important, hahah…….wait….oh shit.

    “SkyWay said it was focused on bringing to the market a network supporting aircraft-related service including anti-terrorism support, real time in-flight surveillance and monitoring, Wi-Fi access to the Internet, telephone service and enhanced entertainment service for commercial and private aircraft throughout the United States.”

    That aircraft-related service would not include inflight torture, would it?


    Thanks, Zwoof – outstanding.

    And a big Hello to your Sea Monkeys.
