The whole plane!

Well otherwise, just the cockpit, and I'll install Flight Sim on if so I can use a real cockpit. Should be a lot of fun  Wink

I have a friend that used to be a 738 capt that makes real size flightdecks of the plane you tell him, with real FMCs and sometimes even real aircraft parts.

An engine. Especially one of those JT8Ds or GE-90-115Bs.

However, I did find a gas cap and one of those nuts that are secured by a pin on runway 28R/10L at PIT.

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.  silly

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.  Wink Regards.
