Wanted: 747

Post by Insured Disaster » Sat Aug 21, 2004 4:39 am

I am looking for a 747-400 with low hours. No basket cases. Must come with fuel and lessons. Looking for a cheap one. Used is probably good. Need financing. Allowance is only $200 a month. If you have a 747 you want to get rid of, I might be the buyer you are looking for.

The problem is that nobody want's to sell a 747 with low ariframe hours, it ie either new 0 Hours and very expencive or lots of jours and cheapie (around 700,000-900,00). 747, for sale, not too old, it is a very rare combination...

may I ask why?

Post by lortiawhak » Sat Aug 21, 2004 5:04 pm

couldn't find a new 747. the ones with low hours are probably being enoyed by the airlines. Lessons, make use of your flight simulator, or become a really good friend with an airline so they let you train on their motion simulator. Fuel, "borrow" some.
Try here.

go to aircraft available on the left.

you might want to try a 777. those are newer.

Good Luck! :D

I figured I could fix it up and sell it on ebay, with free shipping (which is why I would need lessons.) Thanks for the information.


P.S. I am joking.

I officiallly declare Wackie as the winner of JOKE "Wheres a Cheap 747." His sterling contribution met both criteria, cheap ( probably less than $20) and low time (brand new apon deliever). It also was just plain funny (haha, pun). So now, the joke is over, and people should stop sending me links to real planes.

Thanks,
-Ben, plastic model builder extrodinar.

You may not be able to get a 747 online. But 2 yrs ago you could get a real f/a-18 online. Either you assemble or assembled. It was on ebay. Totally True, no B.S.

How much money do YOU have.. :D

Maybe if my last name was Trump... :lol: , it is the forward fuselage section of a C-130 with the complete flight deck and engineers stations and operators panels and yes, I would love to have it, but alas, the second in command would have me scuttled if I tried to drag it home.

Wait does this guy want to actually get a real 747? If so, good luck, man. 200 dollars a month? them things cost millions and millions of dollars, that's gonna take literally a lifetime to pay off.

Post by groundsquirrel » Sun May 22, 2005 2:04 pm

I dont think "real" was one of his qualifiers, kind of a perception test. Occasionally you will see planet of origin type surveys like this one in the Surclaro forums :wink:

A girl in one of my classes yesterday dd a briefing on the 747 and she had a "model" made of durable plastic and could fly (across the water), best of all, it cost her $2.72. It was a pool float. Like the swans people used to have.

omg....please use common sense...as in please read all of the replies.....it already says "ok the joke is over stop sending me links to real 747s" and yes you can buy planes online there are businesses that resell airplanes. although the actual transactions r probably not online, you can browse through all the planes. i want one...

On a trip to my local RAF air base they were phasing out the RAF Jaguars, I when I asked if I could have one they said yeah, I could have it for £3000. Unfortunatly I dont have three grand (being 16).

This is for the whole aircraft, excluding the weapons systems and electronics etc.

If you need a new engine for it though, it will cost a bit more than your average job could pay for.
Go to M77 and look for Millerpede's Abyss, another that was discovered by someone else is SESM

Yep, I am being serious

The plane itself was in very good condition, but I should imagine that the engine would need replacing, as it was not in service, I thought about having one in the back garden (how cool would that be)
