Women of Enron

A 2002 article in the Washington Post about Playboy magazine provided temporary employment for several women laid-off from the failing Enron corporation.Clicking on the magazine cover to the left will take you to a 2002 article in the Washington Post about how Playboy magazine provided temporary employment for several women laid-off from the failing Enron corporation.

Back in 2002, I was still brokering airplanes, and one day I got a call from a fellow wanting to sell his Ercoupe. "A really nice airplane", he said, "and at the moment it is kind of famous." Turns out, his girlfriend was recently laid-off from Enron, now closed up and in terrible financial condition. Fortunately, according to my new client, she was a pretty attractive lady and in a group hired by Playboy magazine to be featured in an article, with photos of their very obvious assets.

When the photographer asked if she could suggest a location for the photoshoot, the young lady replied, "Well, my boyfriend has an airplane ..."

"I have photos of the plane", my seller said, "and the one Playboy took, should get a lot of attention".

And it did. I had hundreds of inquiries about that airplane, suddenly everybody wanted to buy a 1946 Ercoupe. Not wanting to get in trouble with any straight-laced web visitors, rather than show the photo as it was taken, I covered the woman up with a sign telling readers how they could enjoy this, by sending me an email and I would send them back the photo. I remember getting about 500 emails in the next couple of days, and the airplane sold quickly.
