Tom Oreck (Oreck Vacuums)


#1

I was watching the travel channel recently and there was a programme about million dollar planes. They showed Mr. Oreck’s Pilatus based out of Mountain Air, NC (2NCO). Does anyone know the tail number. I though I saw N49JG but that belongs to another aircraft.


#2

I saw N146PC on a plane in that show, but it may have just been another Pilatus…


#3

FYI- His name is Dave not Tom. He owns a whole collection of planes and was a B-29 pilot in WWII.


#4

Ironic that the sidebar ad while I was reading this thread was for www.oreck.com!


#5

I saw the program and he is reffering to Dave’s son Tom.


#6

Not really that ironic. Google ads are suppose to be context sensitive.


#7

Regardless of how it occurred, I considered it ironic.

For instance, there was no such ad visible to me either while I was reading your reply nor while I was typing this response.


#8

context sensitive, HA!
I have been getting an AD for a BIRTH CONTROL device for the past 3 or 4 days.I am 76 years old. LOL


#9

I use gmail (Google-powered with their ads), and whenever the Flying newsletter comes in, I tend to get ads for jet charters & flight schools… I will only call BS on context sensitive when I see ads for viagra or something… :unamused:

please stay on topic


#11

Tony Randall became a father twice after the age of 76 so…you never know :wink:


#12

Was it Tony or was it Rubbermaid?


#13

I wasn’t there but, I think that was right around the time Vitamin V was released.

Oh and Oreck vacuums really suck, just to stay on topic.


#14

What more could you ask of a vacuum?


#15

Very little.

And for the OP, yes, it’s Tom Oreck, son of Dave who has a PC12, but I’m afraid I don’t know the N number, sorry.

David Oreck at 82 continues to be active in aviation, maintaining and flying his personal collection of aircraft which includes a Stinson Reliant SR 10J, a WACO WMF, an Aviat Husky Amphibian, an American Champion Decathlon, a Staggerwing Beech G-17S, and a Beech T-34A Mentor.

Since we have gone so far off topic, I will add this.
I know Tony Randell’s widow, last saw her when she was around 17. The daughter of a best friend. She is a beautiful redhead.
No vitamin V necessary!

Tom’s tail number was N524CM,but he has since sold his plane to a person in CA and is currently trying to sale his home in Mountain Air because he has bought Minnie Pearls home in TN 4.6 mil I would have stuck with the Pilatus less headaches.


#18

I see that his Citation Cj3 is up for sale N535CM


#19

Seems to be selling off all his goodies…maybe his business is sucking wind.
