What you would need to do is place a levy on the airplane seeking appropriate storage fees for the abandoned airplane. At that point, if the owner does not seek to pay the outstanding fees, then the airplane will be sold to reimburse you for reasonable storage fees. To figure out a proper amount, you could look at the storage costs offered by other warehouses/airports. You may find that the storage fees you could seek were more than the salvage value of the plane.
How and where do I go to place a levy on the airplane?
