Was A Plane Registered in Stephen Paddock's Name Scrubbed from FAA Database that is now Registered to a Defense Contractor?

by Tim Brown, Freedom Outpost:

I have discovered that there was apparently a plane that has been listed in the FAA database as "deregistered" that is also showing up at FlightAware.com as being registered in 2006 and 2007 to Stephen C. Paddock of both Henderson, Nevada and Mesquite, Texas, the alleged Las Vegas shooter.

There has been social media activity that has claimed the plane is also registered to a defense contractor.

However, the FAA has the plane deregistered just days before the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Here's what I discovered.

First, here's the FAA's website showing the deregistering of the plane.  The tail number is N5343M.  You can input the at FAA.Gov and obtain the information and then input it at FlightAware.com.

Here are the screen captures of both results.

Notice that after being deregistered just 5 days prior to 9/11/2001, the FAA has no further record of this plane.  I contacted the FAA Office of Inspector General about the information.  As of the writing of this article, they have not responded to my request for comment.

I also contacted FlightAware.com and pointed out the discrepancy, which they claim comes from the FAA website.

Notice that in 2006, the plane was registered to Stephen C. Paddock of Henderson, Nevada and in 2007, the plane was registered to him again, only in Mesquite, Texas.

The female operator I spoke to at FlightAware expressed concern when she saw the name Stephen Paddock and I told her that was the alleged Las Vegas shooter.
