Wayne Newton's abandoned jet

Wayne Newton's abandoned jet rotting at Oakland County airportOfficials say "Mr. Las Vegas" Wayne Newton owes a Detroit-area airport more than $60,000 after abandoning his plane more than three years ago and leaving it to gather mold.

Joe Borgesen, president of Oakland County International Airport in Waterford Township, says the plane once worth about $2 million was flown into the airport about 25 miles northwest of Detroit to have interior work done that took about a year to complete. He said Newton initially paid storage fees, but then stopped.
