Does anyone know what happened to the “Plane Collector” guy over on YouTube?
He’s the guy that wore the wigs he made from the plane shavings.
I have been one of his subscribers for a couple of years and his channel is gone!
I learned a lot from that guy. I hope he’s ok.

Chem, I was wondering the same. All his movies are gone. Such a pity. I hope he is fine.

Someone on Reddit said that his e-bay store is gone too.

Yes his Ebay store is gone. I saw his channel down this weekend, and went to Ebay to see if that was still there. Sometimes YouTube will cut you off because they feel like it.

But given that his channel and store are gone, I am starting to wonder if something bad happened to him.

Oh man! I hope he’s OK and that we hear what happened. He was a great resource for me and for others as well.

And he does not answer his email, I sent him a question about 2 weeks ago and he usually reacts within a day or two. So far no answer… I learned a lot from him.

I have his phone number. No answer. I sent him a text. If something did happen maybe someone will see it and contact me.

I heard back from him. He’s doing fine. He said he just had to take a break for personal reasons.

Whew! .......... I’m glad that’s all it was. If you talk to him again tell him that I’m glad he is OK and I hope that it all works out well for him.

Thank you for the update Rick!

I was looking for him as well. He is a fantastic resource and I just discovered his youtube channel six months back. It is unusual to see someone go completely “dark’ but I am really glad he is doing OK. Here is hoping he accomplishes what he wants with this personal time, and if I may be a little selfish, here’s hoping he gets back to plane restoration. He has so much knowledge!

Thoughts and prayers!

Rick – I don’t want to pry, but if you get a chance to talk with him again, I’d be curious why he deleted the videos, rather than just not producing any more? I ask because I’m a YouTube creator also, and if (heaven forbid) I ever decide to quit producing videos, I’d like to know what the downside is to just leaving the videos up.

Thanks.
