I apologize for my run-on paragraphs, my teachers always warned me about that!
Swedie, I would explain the Harley by saying that it was stolen and chopped by another branch of the same people my theory suspects are squeezing the Millards. I think the only reason it was not originally liquidated was that once the mechanics found one set of hidden VINs they knew the bike was not worth stripping to check each and every part for other hidden numbers. I have mentioned that it was conveniently still in its own easily movable trailer and that it could have showed up there at the hanger at anytime during the week, my guess would have been the same night when the other trailer was being placed in MB's driveway.
Other than the confirmation on the stolen Harley, the LE involved have not specifically confirmed that the other vehicles there are reported as stolen, only that they suspected some might be, and that they found parts with destroyed VINs, from what I recall. How hard would it be to scoop up some extra scrapped stolen parts from the same chop shop that disassembled the Harley and bring them over with the trailer and scatter them around? Personally I imagine many of the cars found are from CM's collection and I doubt CM was buying stolen cars, although anything is possible. But I find it odd that we haven't had confirmation on other stolen vehicles, and I find it odd that the Harley was returned to the owner. From what I have been told, courts always require the best copy of all evidence presented, meaning if it came down to having an item present or just a photo of an item, the item itself would be preferable, and even if it were not brought into the court, it would be held in custody until after the trial in case the evidence is disputed.
I would also hazard to guess that if OC wants to put their claws into you or your business, they would probably either get something incriminating on you first, or create something incriminating to stop you from going to the police. Or they could just threaten your loved ones. I don't think that they make it that easy just to go to the police and say 'Some goon from some OC is trying to blackmail me!' Isn't there some saying about what happens to rats or snitches? Although that could fit, WM did end up with a bullet in his head, didn't he?
And to follow that logic, once a loved one has already been murdered by OC, is that really when you would feel confident to go to the police? They followed through on one threat, who knows who they may have threatened to kill next? And they could threaten things worse than death, I imagine. So then isn't the intelligent thing to do to give them what they want, to say protect your mother? Or to delay giving them what they want (by cancelling the MTO certificate) until you no longer have something that they want, and then let them threaten the next owner. Or to change the business so that it is no longer what they want.
And finally Swedie I don't think DM would have had to kill his father to get control of the hanger, isn't is highly quoted that the hanger was to be Dellen's project, his future? Why would he have to murder to get something that was meant to be his anyway, that doesn't really make sense. I realize you have probably already made up your mind that he is guilty, and I apologize that I haven't figured out how to quote your post here yet, but to me people are not guilty just because they have been arrested and use their right to remain silent. I think the because the media has not been able to get a word from him, they have instead done everything that they can to roast DM so thoroughly that I imagine most people feel the same way you do. And isn't it a little one sided? Perhaps because MS's sister has apparent connections in the media, she may have pulled some favours and kept his name out of the spotlight as much as possible. There must be 50 DM articles for every one on MS.
To me this case really does not make sense in a lot of ways, it does not seem cut and dry and easily explained as a thrill kill or for profit, there really seems to be no motive. It would be like my daughter killing someone for a pair of shoes she could easily buy. And I think it's the lack of sense that has so many people drawn to it. I tend to agree with Blomquist that it seems too neat the way the big crumbs lead right to DM's door and I find a lot of inconsistencies otherwise.
I don't know if DM looks the same in all the pictures, Blomquist, and from what I have seen, aren't most of the pictures taken from other people's facebook pages? They could have tagged anyone, I don't know which ones have actually been verified as him. But I do find the one with the bloody eye must be very old because to me that doesn't look much like him.
Now that makes me wonder, do players see their own profile picture clearly each time they game on that site, or do they just see their own avatar? Is it just something the other players might see occasionally and small, like a thumbnail on a menu? It may be possible in that case that someone else could have put that picture there and he just never noticed.

All Aircraft must file a flight plan with NavCanada when they are flying more than 25 nautical miles away from their departure airport. Flight plans of Private and Commercial aircraft can be tracked at http://flightaware.com/ Since 9/11, crossing the Canada/US border via small plane is much more difficult than it sounds. All planes would have to go thru "normal" customs checks. Customs are not related to Transport Canada or Nav Canada and all planes must give advanced notice to Customs. CanPass is is the easiest route. Regardless, 2 hours notice has to be given, and failure to do this can result in Customs confiscating the Aircraft and fining the pilot/owner. http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/prog/canp...-eng.html#s2x1
It's kind of a romantic idea thinking that planes could be flying in and out of an international airport, smuggling all sorts of things- but I have to say it's extremely far fetched. Between Transport Canada requirements for flight plans, transponders, squawk codes, Nav Canada towers...and Customs plus Homeland Security in the States...nahhhh...much easier to take a car across the border!
The historical data for all three aircraft can be found on the Transport Canada site: http://wwwapps2.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur...uicksearch.asp
The Bell Helicopter C-FKLK is the only thing that there is really proof of DM flying.
C-GAFF- Piper Navajo-Imported in 2004 by Millardair : latest Certificate of Registration issued November 13, 2012 (this is strange because the previous C of R was issued in Jan 2008, when Millardair went from being Millardair Limited to Millardair Inc. There are no changes on the C of R...so why it was reissued on November 13/12 doesn't really make sense)
C-GMLJ - Piper Navajo with longest history at Millardair-joining fleet in December,1986.
Most pilots who fly the Navajo's hold a Commercial Pilots License or an ATPL and it is approved for single pilot IFR flight if certain weather minimums are met and the auto-pilot is working. Because they were registered as "private" also means that they could not be used for anything commercial or revenue generating. These are complex twin engine aircraft that require a great amount of skill and experience to fly.
A brief history of the old Millardair DC Fleet that they were really known for: MILLARDAIR Douglas C54E/DC-4 Skymaster--C-GFMQ | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
There is absolutely no evidence anywhere indicating that DM held his multi-engine license(required for the other two registered aircraft)or an Instrument rating, which would be needed to fly either of the other two planes in anything but clear skies and if flying above 12,500' a controlled Visual Flight Rules(VFR) clearance or an Instrument Flight rating. Helicopter licenses are different than fixed wing licenses and they are not interchangeable.

Ms.Sherlock, thanks. Do the Transport Canada requirements include planes flying in for maintenance only? Or are some usual requirements not enforced? The flight plans and everything can seem to be on the up-and-up anyway.
(My DM flying /smuggling theory bit the dust when I read Jubalee's, which made a lot more sense.)

Thank you for that MsSherlock, I appreciate information that makes me think! I followed your link but cannot understand what I was looking at, were there flight records for those planes showing that they have not been flown since WM died but that the helicopter has? I am confused about how you can tell from that link that he seems to be only licensed to fly helicopters but not his planes.
I could have sworn I saw a picture on someone's FB of DM in the pilot's seat, in the air, and I thought it was posted this year. Would this mean then that he was flying without registering a flight plan or flying without a licence? Because I would think that would be very hard to do post 9/11. Is it possible his flight originated somewhere else or that he has a foreign pilot's licence perhaps? Or am I completely mistaken or maybe he is flying a helicopter in that photo? Could a flight plan have been registered in the co-pilot's name instead? I don't think his ability to fly planes is an assumption, there is footage of him flying solo at 14, is there not?
I wasn't suggesting that DM would himself be smuggling things over the border in one of his planes, but that the larger aircraft coming in for maintenance and repairs might be used by OC to smuggle things in or out of the country. I imagine that when cars are used to smuggle things across the boarder, they are using cavities in the vehicles, for example inside the seats or the gas tank. And I would imagine that large aircraft have many more places to hide things. I have no idea how planes are normally inspected between flights, but to me it just makes sense that the process might be a little less thorough when there are no intended passengers or cargo and it is just a maintenance flight with trusted airline personnel who have already passed stringent security checks. Or maybe they already have the right people paid off, and they just needed a nice quiet hanger to unload contraband privately.
It sounds like you are familiar with air travel, what can you tell us, please, if anything, of the process for customs agents to inspect large commercial aircraft in scheduled or emergency maintenance stops?

Unlicensed pilots are caught once in a while. So it is possible once, anyway.
You give your name and license# as part of the flight plan among other things.
There is plenty of contraband around so yes it gets thru somewhere. Generally, planes are checked just as the cargo and the passengers are. Now, they may not be 100% inspected during every stop at every airport but they would be checked prior to taking out of service for maintenance. People with access to areas where planes are stored, worked on, refueled, etc., etc., are required to have clearance and their PIN shouldn't get them everywhere else in the airport, or tarmac.

Hopefully others can help with some of the dates but the margarita/mohawk photo (second link in your second grouping) is from the Baja race so late May/early June 2011.
The first link in your first grouping and the rest of the links in the second grouping (with the exception of the mohawk one) are all from the summer of 2012 trip to Europe I believe. The photos appear to have been removed from Facebook so I can't be more precise than that.
07-09-2013, 07:34 PM #12
I'm getting the same picture in the 1st link and the 3rd link from the second grouping. That picture was taken at Bar Del Mar in Mykonos, so yes, the trip to Greece in July/August 2012. As Jash said, the second one is when they were at the Baja 500 - the actual race was June 3 -5, 2011.
