Some men choose to live a different life. While most men decide willingly or otherwise to live what one may call a traditional life where they work a regular job, get married, raise a family, and get involved with their interests some men take the opposite path. They do what they want to do even if society does not appreciate it, even if there is not enough money in it, and people feel it’s a non-conventional life. They may end up having a more fulfilling and happier life than the traditionalists. The truth is they often do. There is something to be said about living the life one wants even if it is very different from everybody else’s life. Danny Thompson from Airplane Repo is one such unconventional man. From a young age, he decided that he would follow his passions and go wherever they take him and not worry about what society and conventional people say about him. He took the exciting road that was less travelled and has enjoyed his journey far more than most other people. He is still doing what he wants and achieving his objectives. Here are a few details from Danny Thompson’s wiki.

While Danny Thompson has done many things in his life he is best known for appearing on the TV show Airplane Repo from 2010 to 2015 where he did a job as a bounty hunter. Airplane Repo is an American documentary-style mostly fictional TV show that shows the activities of repossession agents as they try to recover aircraft and sometimes other high-value assets from their owners who haven’t been able to keep up with their payments. These repossession agents are hired by financial institutions who want to recover the maximum money they can by seizing the assets of the people who are unable to repay them the amount they owe. Airplane Repo premiered on the Discovery Channel on December 12, 2010, and has had a run of three seasons so far with season 3 concluding on September 16, 2015. Danny Thompson appeared from season 1 and impressed the viewers and the show makers with his recovery knowledge and his body guarding skills in protecting fellow cast member Ken Cage from angry debtors. Thompson’s nickname is the “pit bull” which has been given because of the single-minded way he goes about doing his work once the task has been assigned to him.
