ARJ21. OK, so one has been delivered so far, but it has still to enter commercial service, and I can't see it lasting for very long. I doubt many will be built.

RE: How Much Are Safety Cards Worth

It is not unusual for cards to go for $100+ on eBay. It is difficult to say what the market value is when a high price on eBay can be achieved with just two bidders in a bidding war. In my experience, however, there are only about a dozen regular safety card buyers on eBay (as well as the one-off bu...
