My friend who was one of those that got furloughed at Ryan International informed me this evening that RYN had filed for CH 11 BK, and to expect a news release coming soon...
Here is the press release...
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

According to an internal memo that we've gotten here at 13News, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Rubloff Development owns Ryan. The memo, from Rubloff President Mark Robinson, gives a couple of reasons: delays getting a new airplane into service and a drop in troop transport flights.
