Wayne Newton's Plane -- $700,000 Down the Drain

2/4/2010 5:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wayne Newton's Plane -- $700,000 Down the DrainWayne Newton claims he was ripped off by the people he hired to fix his private jet -- claiming he blew more than $700,000 in repairs and the damn thing still doesn't work.

Newton is reportedly under fire for allegedly abandoning the jet in a hangar at the Oakland County International Airport in Michigan nearly three years ago -- the hangar claims Wayne owes more than $60,000 in storage fees.

But TMZ spoke with Newton's rep who told us Wayne is the real victim here -- because he's spent "more than $700,000 to get the plane fixed and it's still not fixed."

The rep tells us Wayne is exploring his legal options -- but it's unclear who Newton is looking to sue.

Danke Schoen.

This is funny because last August, Newton was on my flight from Missoula, MT to Las Vegas. We were flying on Allegient, a super low budget airline, and kept wondering why he was on our flight. This clears it up!

LOVE the Allegiant flights to LV! NO stops, nice leather seats, and more dependable than any major airline.
They are superior and cheaper than any other carrier.
oh yeah, United blows

That photo makes him look like the mass murderer and delusional psychotic Chairman Mao of 20th Century China. Who cares what some fourth-rate Vegas nightcrawler does for a living? He comes from a Vegas era that relied on glossy orchestrated gin-soaked candyfloss for music and lyrics and I think the world moved on. Maybe replace him with a parrot in a tux and top hat. Charge $5 and say the parrot will read your palm. Maximum 1 minute per customer. Welcome to Vegas, SUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
