I told a very good friend of mine that the B720 that his group had hired for their 1973 US tour was parked at the end of Luton runway. Thankfully, and he is a very intelligent man, I put him off the idea, even though he had plenty of land for it. Are there any relics in your house?

How much do they want for the plane?


If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

Well he's lucky. Some people have parts that have fallen off of Boeing aircraft stuck in their garden.

Sorry to hear that Acidradio involuntarily receieves parts of aircraft. Maybe keep them all and like the Johnny Cash song about the auto industry, you could end up with a whole plane. Alternatively, lets buy the manufacturer some superglue.

Boy, I would love to buy one of the Iberia A300´s stored at VLC...

My largest aircraft goodies are a pair of economy class seats from a Martinair DC-10.

Levent-what does one do with 2 seats off a Martinair DC10. I,ve got an altimeter from a Viscount from the 1960s; totally useless as my appartment is on the ground floor. Enjoy your seats-having flown on many DC10s I bet they are uncomfortable.

Heh, heh... I bought them in an aviation shop for 125 guilders (60 euros). They come from one of the two DC10´s that were converted into tankers for the Royal Dutch Air Force. They have this hippy-style green/blue fabric over them, and they indeed are uncomfortable... but who cares?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I also have a Spanish made altimeter that was taken out of the aircraft in 1976, but I don´t know when it was made neither from which plane it comes...

Do you have any details about the B720.

N7201U-the prototype 720. How it ended up at Luton appears to be a mystery and as my mate didnt buy it, presume it was scrapped there.
