Federal drug agents seized the turbo prop Rockwell International Commander 690B two years ago in Texas and nobody tried to get it back.

“Nobody wants the plane except for the government?” U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman asked a federal prosecutor during a recent hearing in Detroit.

“What’s it worth?” the judge asked Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Kuebler.

“Almost a million dollars,” the prosecutor said.

“Really?” the judge said.

Nice plane, but I would suspect it will be very tough to sell now.

That screams Neal Schwartz salesmanship right thar.
They are awesome planes. It will be interesting to see what it goes for. The panel is pretty.
