A bunch of the non-museum aircraft are up for auction. Only $1 a piece:

I'd love to get a pilot's seat or control wheel out of some of those.

I'd even pick it up from Greybull.
Be a nice roadtrip.

Ex-Ozark 404 - major cool 8) . My late uncle Tommy Cassibry would've loaded baggage into that one many times at Barkley Regional in Paducah (PAH).

I'm assuming scrappers would be the serious bidders here? Wish I could save the skin with "go <- OZARK" on it. And the C-82 would make a great cabin with a roof put over it - and "Arabco Oil Co." markings...

I would assume the engines, and other small resellable parts, have been removed?

I wonder if the BAHF can use the C-97's for parts. Those bid prices have me day dreaming...

Wish a C-119 was saved and flown on the circuit by someone. Hard sell I know. But a guy can dream.

If Hans ever sells the Flight of The Phoenix C-119, it was in very good shape when I flew it..
