Wayne Newton Owes $60K for Dumped, Rotting Jet

Thursday, 04 Feb 2010 03:35 PM

 

Officials say singer Wayne Newton owes a Detroit-area airport more than $60,000 after abandoning his plane more than three years ago and leaving it to gather mold.

Oakland County International Airport President Joe Borgesen says the plane once worth about $2 million was flown into the airport about 25 miles northwest of Detroit to have interior work done that took about a year to complete. He said Newton, who is known as "Mr. Las Vegas," initially paid storage fees but then stopped.

Borgesen estimates moving the non-working plane would cost about $30,000.

A woman who answered the phone at Erin Miel Inc., the entertainment company owned by Newton, told The Oakland Press on Wednesday she is aware the plane is at the airport but provided no further information.
