      Hello, I live on Long Island. It's Worth noting, Islip IS pronounced "I-slip" !!!! NOT "Is-lip" !!
      Please do some investigation of pronunciations before saying them. Thank you.

    3:34 "Izzlip"? The city is pronounced "Eye-slip." It's a class C airport served by three airlines.

    Wow, another wendover productions?
    OK, seriously though, I think it started as a legit business, but it just didn’t work out. At this point, I think the company knows it isn’t going anywhere, but is vainly trying to get SOME return on investment.

    Half as airworthy doesn't instill a lot of confidence for the preservation of life after boarding a plane.

  • Bill_nye_the Ruski_spy

    You know that this is true and you are an aircraft geek knowing every plane that flew, yet never heard of this. Congrats for this guy for finding that missing piece.

    I mean can get a 747 easily for at or below $2 million. But you are most likely only getting the actual "chassis" of that aircraft. Airlines usually have the engines and all the avionics removed (sometimes even the flaps) when they send aircraft to a yard for storage.
