So I've been looking around and as everyone knows, listed planes are getting snatched up pretty quick. There's one I'd like to look at but Im leaving for a trip on Friday for two weeks. The likelihood of it still being there in this market is slim. Anyway, after playing around on the FAA registry there's a few planes relatively local to me that have caught my interest. Ones that according to flightaware haven't flown in some time. The first Dakota I looked at was last flown 20 years ago... according to flight aware. That owner appears to be in his 80s now so there's the possibility that's true. So first, how much credibility would you put into flightaware when it says a plane last flew 3,5,20 years ago. I'm well aware of the can of worms that would need to be opened. Second, has anyone had suçcess writing a letter expressing interest in a plane not listed?
