20. Two years ago, Judge Glenn called this case "murky. (Madcow Jun 5 2006)
I'm probably talking to myself, however let's continue the timeline because Hopsicker's latest news report is paranoia about Abramob.

Let's recap why Skyway is important:

The two DC9s (Cocaine One and the sister plane) were purchased several years ago by a still-unexplained partnership between Frederic Geffons Royal Sons LLC and SkyWay Aircraft.

SkyWay was responsible for painting two DC9's to look like they belong to the US Dept of Homeland Security. (3)

Royal Sons are the major players, however they are also the least visible, since it might be connected to dudes like Prince Nayif bin Fawwaz al-Shaalan al-Saud. (4)

Skyway turns out to be some scammers and even though they cannot be called petty, they do not appear to be that important except for all those Saudis and the previous company used to have ties with Khashoggi (1) who previously worked Oliver North to sell arms to Iran via Iran Contra Inc. (2)

In the timeline above we noticed that at the same time when Oliver North's Iran Contra Inc. was getting exposed, the kingpin (5) behind Oliver North made sure that they weren't involved in Skyway anymore.

So what happened to Skyway:
On May 2004 Lantex Ltd. entered into an agreement with the Titan Corporation who did a lot of work for Dept. of Homeland Security (6) and were behind the Abu Ghraib scandal (14), however that contract was canceled on December 15, 2004 since neither Lantex nor Skyway has provided any services under the contract (7).

On November 15, 2004, Lantex Ltd. filed a press release: "Lantax Prepared To Fund SkyWay Communications Holding Corp. With $24 Million." (8)

And Skyway would have become really big, because on November 17, 2004 the following press release was filed: "The duPont Investment Fund 57289, Inc. Satisfies $7 Million Funding Agreement with SkyWay Communications Holding Corp." (9)

Here is where the DC-9 fits in
The terms of the original duPont Investment Fund agreement have been revised to provide for an asset transfer of a 1966 McDonald Douglas DC9 aircraft serial #45775 and associated FAA Part 125 certificate number Q3GB807J. The aircraft is to be provided to Skyway in exchange for 28,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $5,880,000 (7).

And the DC-9 turns out to be N120NE which is owned by Royal Sons Motor Yacht Sales, Inc. (12)

On December 15,2004 Titan bails out and the next day on December 16, 2004, Skyway signed a Loan Agreement with Lantex which provides up to $24 million. (7)

And then it turned out that duPont Investment Fund didn't exist, so the whole Skyway - Lantax - duPont Investment - Titan deal was over and Lantex looted Skyway in revenge.

So who is Lantex Ltd?

Papa Williams, CEO Lantax, Ltd
Lantax, Ltd. is a private international venture capital group dedicated to finding and investing in early stage companies that are the most advanced and effective at combating security threats to private, commercial, national and international governments. The heightened threat of terrorism has brought newfound attention to corporate, governmental, and private surveillance systems. However, few organizations have the capabilities necessary to integrate their surveillance operation into their core IT infrastructure. Rather than becoming a target for start up ventures, Lantax, Ltd. chooses to operate as an anonymous entity, which allows them to seek out developing companies that meet their investment criteria. They desire to invest alongside the management of developmental stage, anti-terrorist security companies, which seem to have the greatest potential to develop into significant economic contributors.

Whole lotta bullshit and of course there is no trace of Lantex except for the Skyway deal. No address or names are known except for Dr. Thabo Stephens (10) and the only other place where we find that name is in a Nigerian e-mail scam called Papa Williams (11). Regardless of who Thabo Stephens or whatever it is an alias, he is definitely not a big player.

What other companies are closely connected to Skyway?

  • Southeast Airlines, a small charter airline located in Largo, Florida.
  • Executive Charter Inc. a Clearwater Florida based executive jet charter service.

    Executive Charter doesn't appear to be very interesting at first sight, so let's look at Southeast Airlines, because on December 2, 2004 there was the abrupt shutdown of Southeast Airlines (13) and that was same month Skyway disappeared as well...

    So who was Southeast Airlines
    Southeast started out as Sun Jet International and carried some interesting passengers: prisoners in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service, the White House press corps and as Casino AirLink gamblers headed for Atlantic City and Biloxi (15)

    In 1998 Thomas Kolfenbach buys Sun Jet and renames it to Southeast Airlines and as a discount airline often going as low as $59. Of course it wasn't meant to last... (15) The sister company Casino AirLink wasn't affected for some weird reason...

    Confused already? Judge Glenn called this case "murky."
