$20 seems very reasonable.

That only covers the documents and postage. Using $20 = Rs1200 for conversion, $3,333.33 still have to be raised for deposit. If you'd pick up the tab for those, I think the membership will be generous enough to contribute $20 for your A.net birthday gift.  birthday   dollarsign   present  Provided of course, that there's no floor price, and that you'll also take care of all the closing costs in case your bid wins.  Wink Oh, one other thing - we get to ride free on the ferry flight - after the a/c has passed its D-check.  airplane  We'll handle our visa arrangements, thank you.  Smile

Actually these aircraft have been for sale since 2000-2001 but nobody wants a VIP 707 as the conversion cost is higher then the value of the aircraft. There were offers to part out the aircraft about 5-7 years ago but those were not accepted. The C is not stage 3 which rules out flying to any interesting places, hence they really have not much value left in them. With the increasing availabilities of DC-8-62's that would be a better choice anyway.
