"Boss, we got it to .1 on the mains but I don't reckon I can take it out on that job on monday. Yeah, yeah it's parked as close as I could get it to the hangar"........"About that time off I asked for"



Anyone know the story behind this one? I could not imagine ringing my boss and telling him that I just did this.

9 Seat aircraft, though there were 5 of us, with all our luggage, groceries and fishing and diving gear, the only thing missing were the chickens.

Seen On Ebay!

"Fantastic, one owner MD500. Low component hours. Fresh metallic silver paintwork. Low component hours. ADF, Autopilot (no manual), SAS (non-operational), RADALT, Leather Upholstery (Pilot's seat base slightly stained). Low component hours. Needs minor work to get flying again, $2 - 3,000 tops. Great school project for someone. Low component hours. Re-build and fly in your back garden! Serious offers considered but nothing silly please. Starting bid $1, no reserve........"
