Yep, Gunpowder ... imagine the consultancy fees available of you operate YS11s, B737-200s, B737-800s, MD83s, L1011s ... the spares logistics alone must be rather interesting!!
Ol' Conrad is certainly an expert at 'way out of line' pricing. Has he managed to explain to the Stock Exchange - and the government and shareholders (including employees) where US$20m in book value on the L1011s and spares has disappeared to? More to the point, has he been asked - and if not, why not??
I think we should be told....:D
