My exact memories of the facts surrounding the following story are sketchy, but the gist of it is true, as far as I can remember.

In August of 2001, about a month or so before he pulled the plug, Sam told all employees who had AMCV stock that they were not allowed to sell it, for some reason. He then proceeded to "transfer" a significant number of his shares to one of his personal employees, later saying that it was not a sale.

And then one night..... as the AQ was enroute to St Louis from Hannibal .... the hammer came down.

As far as I know, MAL, at least, did not do that.
