35. good grief!
This is some fascinating stuff. Re: Executive Outcomes. Immediately after Wellstone's plane went down, I went online and wound up at the SEC looking for corporate ownership of the plane, which was operated by Executive Aviation. While at SEC, I found bunches of listings for Executive this and Executive that related to this company. But in the typical shell game, all these companies kept changing names. Executive Jet became Net Jets, Executive Aviation became Global Jet Aviation, etc.

During this search (but I don't recall the linkage; it might have been gaming interests.) I wound up looking at a company called Butler National Corp in Olathe, Kansas, which was written up for being a corporate success story. Interestingly enough, as "Kansas Exporter of the Year," it was doing business with Pakistan, among others.

Anyway, when I went back to the SEC today to try and see if Executive Outcomes was among the host of companies whose name began with "executive," I found nada, zilch, nothing.

No listing for any of these.
