What part would you like to take home if airlines felt generous enough to let us help ourselves with retired aircraft.
I would like the the captains seat of a 777 but i may have a long wait ahead of me.
What is yours.?

i think i would take the yoke and hook that up to flight simulator and then i would really be rolling but otherwise i would take front landing gear and have a courtyard so when everyone walks in they see a 747 front landing gear.

Ever since I have been interested in aviation, I wanted one thing.
A Q400 aileron!
Every birthday, Christmas, even Easter, that is wht I asked for.
Last Christmas, my dad asked me what I wanted.
Before I could say anything, he added " And you are not getting that aileron!"
In English class, I had a journal assignment where you
had to write about what item you wanted and how you would get it.
I did this HUGE report on how to get a Q400 aileron.
And as you can expect, no one knew what I was talking about.

For me, it has to the entire upper deck of a 747, including the cockpit section. Some time ago, I was at Kingman airport in Arizona where they scrapped an ex-HP 742 and left the upper deck cabin (minus cockpit & floor) off in a private yard across the service road. From what I could gather then at the time, someone had purchase that section and was planning to use it as a carport. Since it was just a circular shell piece, the section was plenty tall & wide enough to park a mid-size vehicle inside it. I think that was, and still is, a novel idea. So if I had a piece of an airplane, let me have the 747's upper deck. Regards.
