I'm don't know if it's true ot not, but me Dad once told me you could buy a surplus P-51 for $500 at the end of WWII. Wish he would have bought one and put it in a hangar for 30 or 40 years.

Surplus planes were a dime a dozen back then. I read that Kirk Kerkorian bought some surplus C-47s and paid them off by selling the fuel left in the tanks. Not a bad deal by any standards.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?
