‘Airplane Repo’ Episode Guide (Aug. 29): Danny and Ken Pursue a Yacht

“Repo Rat Race” (08/29/14) – Danny Thompson and Ken Cage race to beat out an adversary on the biggest yacht heist of their careers. Meanwhile, Mike Kennedy finds himself in a game of “chicken” involving a $6 million Lear jet and a Lamborghini while on a repossession job.

The Airplane Repo crew are back for another season as they continue to scour the ends of the earth to hunt down and recover high-value toxic assets from the nation’s wealthiest “1%.”

This season will dig deep into the minds of these high flying daredevils to find out what makes them tick. Is it greed? Pride? Justice? Or just pure, unadulterated thrill seeking? Find out when “Airplane Repo” returns to Discovery Channel for an all-new season, airing Fridays at 10PM EST.

Returning for the second season is the dynamic duo of Ken Cage and Danny Thompson who have over 1,500 repossessions between the two of them. And of course, crowd favorites Mike Kennedy – the James Bond daredevil who pushes his body and his luck to the limit to capture his target – and his conservative counterpart, the cowboy of the sky, Kevin Lacey. And Lacey has a new weapon in his arsenal – a little fresh female perspective coming from his young apprentice, Heather Sterzick.

A stunt pilot with a military background, Heather is eager to learn, but as the challenges become more complex and the heists harder and harder to pull off; will she be able to prove she has what it takes to hunt alongside the best? The repo world is small and in this cutthroat business, it will take more than just luck and a few tricks to separate the rich from their toys, and one wrong move can spell disaster.

In each episode of “Airplane Repo” these experts are hired by banks to repossess high-end and enormous luxury assets from wealthy individuals behind on their payments. From violent altercations with owners and potential incarceration, to the dangers of flying unfamiliar and possibly damaged planes, the Airplane Repo men – and women- put their lives on the line to get these luxurious mechanical giants back where they belong. As proven in the first season, these high-flying daredevils have the cool tools, experience and the cunning to outsmart bankrupt billionaires on the run – but with more obstacles than ever, can they catch up?

“Airplane Repo” is produced for Discovery Channel by Undertow Films, where Matt Renner, Dan Ilani and Ethan Prochnik are executive producers with Chris Kugelman as co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle is executive producer with Sydney Clover as associate producer.
