You know when you go by V.F.W.s or Legions, whatever. You see helicopters sitting out front on display.
A lot of them paid a dollar for them. Had the link when I talked too the man who owns this one. Real nice guy.
He got it out of Ohio. He was a Nam chopper pilot and "somehow???" got a one time permission too fly it too Florida.
Too purchase. You must be affiliated with an organization that will use it for display purposes.
You must keep it painted and out of respect, looking decent and displayed.
The gentleman who owns this one brings it too the Nam reunion each year.
It is flyable but he is no longer allowed to lift if off the ground.
The jet I will put the picture up. Cost the Navy museum over here at the Deland airport $20,000. The Guberment cost was probably 70 million.
Reason being is because it was flown into the airport for their display.
Navy techs came in and then removed the engines.
If they supplied the transportation too the museum, it would have been transportation cost only.
The Warbird Museum down here buys them and flys them.
VALIANT AIR COMMAND WARBIRD MUSEUM - Titusville Florida
They paid a dollar for a Phantom Jet and were restoring it for flight last time I was there.
Must have been two dozen M-60s at the Nam reunion. Dont know if they were dimilled and Govt. bought for display.
Edit: Here is one link too get you started toward owning your very own Warbird.
