Default Write Off for Taxes

Not to mention ... If anyone needs any "Write Off's" for taxes. I'll sign all the papers saying it was a donation.

I was kinda surprised doing a search for turbine engines at auction. There are quite a few for auction, and some are going for 1100-1500. Not to bad if you are looking to tinker with it and see what comes out of it. I actually have a couple of sites that list parts and complete engines. Pretty cool stuff.

Thats a great price range for me to "Tinker" With.

I've been to avonaero.com but, thats about it. If you'd like to share those sites, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the links. They will come in handy.

Question ... Are these T-53's?
