if Bjarn tore Larsen had read aviation historybooks, at one time Laker and Peoples express were going concerns, and he would have made informed enough not to make that self-serving statement. He lacks from the get- go enough airplanes and enough financial backstopping. In that instance, he is exactly like every other that failed before him .
