    That an old 25 with Jet A guzzling straight turbojets. Loud and fast. Pretty high time on the engines so would think one could pic that up for a few hundred k? Maybe less in this market? Looks mean in black though.

    It's also not AD compliant, meaning there is some work needed to bring it up with airworthiness standards.

    If yoiu look under general merchandise there's a bunch of cheap Chinese-looking scooter, MC's and ATV's. They all say export-only. :D

    In aviation terms that airplane is essentially worthless. Run out engines and not airworthy. I would guess it goes for less than $100k. I know we wouldn't pay that for it.

    They were neat airplanes in their day, but have some very serious operating limitations compared to modern corporate aircraft.

    I gave up on the plane and went for the boat with bullet holes.
