Airplane repo man

Slate has an article about Nick Popovich whose company repossesses airliners and other large aircraft.

There are some adventures involved:
All commercial and private planes were grounded, but Nick Popovich wasn't one to turn down a job. So he waited for the storm to clear long enough to charter a Hawker jet from Chicago into South Carolina. There was just one detail: No one had told Popovich about the heavily armed white supremacist militia that would be guarding the aircraft when he arrived.
