I'd take that 777 out on a country road where there ain't nobody around burn it, and collect the in$urance.

Here's a project for the aspiring aircraft restorer.
It's an ex-German Air Force F-86 Sabre (or remains thereof) currently listed on Ebay for a mere 6,500 ($7,900).

From the description:
Quote:
This F86F Sabre CL13B C/N. 56-1730 is offered for sale due to my forth coming retirement together with lack of time and space.
Formerly displayed outside the officers mess at Jever, it was collected by me last year from Germany where it had lain for several years in a farm yard.
The offer consists of the fuselage (separated at the engine change joint) together with the tail/stabilisers/rudder and canopy frame with a good Perspex to be fitted.
As can be seen from photos whilst in the yard it sustained some skin damage.
When it was taken down from its display pole it was derigged rather brutally due to time constraints, so there are no wings (cut at the centre section) and the tail torque tubes were cut through.
THIS IS ONE OF ONLY FOUR F86s in the UK. So as such can only appreciate in value.
BiB: REALLY?

Ebay listing.

Well, he does have the wings and shit, they just have to be buffed out. I wonder who put it on the pole in Germany?

Jever was an RAF airfield post WW2 until 1961 when it was returned to the GAF and became a NATO base.
I assume that the aircraft was pole mounted, as a monument of sorts, after the type was withdrawn from service.

I think that's how this one ended up, and it buffed out fine.

I like them as art, divorced from what they actually are.

Yep, dude built hisself an airplane using KFC buckets (and the Magnus Effect) for wings:



Skip to about the 8 or 9 minute mark for just the flying. Yes, it flies. Kinda.

Great experience, think of all the things he learned that won't work.
