    There's some good stuff there. All out of my price range though (Except the T210 for $100. I assume that will go for much more of course).

    It looks like they want twenty-five grand on deposit to even bid. The question would be how easily do you get it back if you don't win the bid? I'd bet most bids are by speculative investors and aircraft sales companies who can turn the plane around easily enough for resale.

    Bid deposit is usually returned within 5 business days.

    The bids on the TU206 say "reserve not met". I'm surprised the gov't is putting a reserve on these... they don't want or need to keep the property. It should go to the highest bidder, ba-da-boom.
