If You Could Take An Aircraft Part Home.

Mon Aug 22, 2005 9:03 am

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.?

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.

erm I would take:
a wing (or 2)
A couple a doors..... Basically the whole plane but if I had to pick it would have to be the captains seat ,best seat on the plane!
the captain has now dimmed the lights for take off this is a routine procedure for flights during the hours of darkness!

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.

I can't believe no-one has said this yet, but a Concorde nose cone or the plaques that welcome you on board that have the Concorde logo on them. Ideally I'd have a whole Concorde, with a Concorde simulator, but I think that may never happen. Bugger.

Hell yeah Virgin Atlantic!!

I'd love to bring an engine home. Most airline size turbofans are just too big, unless you have a small warehouse. Give me an older turbojet on a mobile trailer, like a GE J-47, J-85, or Pratt Whitney JT12 or JT15. I'd construct my own custom instrument panel and control column. Be the coolest dude on the block. The rest of the neighborhood can play with their Harleys, boats, dogs n sh1t.

Well, I don't know if this has been mentioned in another thread but on Monday a show on discovery channel called monster house made an aviation home and they stuck the front of an old Delta 727 in a family's back yard. They made this cool new flight simulator where the cockpit is and the rest they made into a lounge.
Lucky family,

Not many of the women in my life really cared for the propeller blade; I missed them, sometimes.  Yeah sure

I too have a set, but no 'entertainment' room to speak of, in fact no room, they're still waiting to be put together after a move from several years ago. Got em' for $50. I also got a Tristar hubcap w/ "LOCKHEED L1011 TRISTAR" embossed on it (removed due anti-skid phenolic wheel u/s). I tried to get a sister cap, but a scrap guy wanted $500.
