Porter missing in the UK // reward// Can't Post

If anyone has news about THAT PORTER, you can get apparently a good reward...

Dammit, if people start hiding planes how are we going to jump.... Unsure

Quote:
REWARD!!

So the plane was taken from the DZ?

Who owed the unpaid lease payments? Was it the person/operation who the plane was taken from?

If the plane was from Walmart - it may be a NZ dropzone.

Is that an accusation? can a moderator please do something about this.

We actually do have a pilatus porter showing up this week, it is located only a minites away, but this type of accusation is uncalled for, and somewhat disgusting.

If you are familair with this thread then you will know what I am talking about

Though I recieved no end of flack for that thread, Nobody could determine where I had done wrong, which by the way was the purpose of the thread.

Turtle and a few other have thrown the 'if it is from walmart' call from time to time.

I am not going to go on about this and his intentions was probably to get a reaction, but I will not stand for being accused for something I did not do.

We are going to have a porter here at our new DZ very soon and this type of bullshit is uncalled for.

Bzzzzzt. wrong answer.
The correct answer is:
Nobody could get past my "I can do no wrong" mental block.



Now back to the Porter.
REPO MAN!

or

No, No! NO! I said, "We need to take back the BORDER", you fool!
