27. Richmond Aviation ALSO runs a flight school; One plane identified as CIA rendition
Edited on Fri Sep-28-07 05:22 AM by DrDebug
This plane which just got caught with coke on board was under investigation but there was no direct evidence that it was involved with the rendition, however one of their aircraft ( double registration: N85VM and N227SV ) was positively identified as used for the kidnapping of Osama Nasr Mostafa Hassan (better known as Abu Omar) from Cairo on Feb. 18, 2003.


Richmor Aviation, Inc. is an aircraft charter company established in 1967. They are based out of Hudson, New York, and have operational locations across the country. In addition to providing airplanes for charter, they also run a flight school.

Rendition

At least one plane supplied by Richmor has become known as a possible transport of suspects in CIA extraordinary rendition operations. The Gulfstream jet in question is owned by Assembly Point Aviation, an Albany, New York company owned by Phillip H. Morse, a part owner of the Boston Red Socks and a successful catheter salesman.

The plane in question sported two different license tags, one was N85VM, and the other was N227SV. These two tags correspond to the Gulfstream with the serial number 1172.

This plane has made over 50 trips to Guantanamo with trips throughout the Middle East, Europe, as well as domestic flights in the US for Red Sox events. (1) (2)
