This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

2. The FAA records and numbers for any aircraft owned by and/or associated with any entity involving directly and/or indirectly, Richard Royden McCleary, Florida and/or Maryland resident.

This is some additional information that may help you find the information I'm seeking:

Ex-Official Sentenced for Drug Smuggling
