DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, July 2013) Discovery Channel explores the high adrenaline, "cat and mouse" world of airplane repossession. "AIRPLANE REPO" follows three teams of repossession experts as they take on the legal, yet extremely challenging, task of repossessing the planes of the nation's wealthiest. The ten episode, one-hour series, "AIRPLANE REPO," premieres Thursday, July 11th at 10 PM E/P. Hired by banks, these bounty hunters of the sky repossess high-end assets from some of the wealthiest who have fallen behind on their payments. These "repo" men face numerous obstacles with each new job including violent altercations with the owners, the risk of arrest and unknowingly flying a damaged plane. The series chronicles these nail-biting, high-stakes jobs as these men only have minutes to inspect the functionality of the plane before they take off in the air. Will they succeed reclaiming these luxury planes or yachts or will their gamble lead to nothing but trouble?
