I got this off our local web page, don't know quite what to think about it. ""UPS has managed to lose my airplane's engine, and it's looking to me like it might have been stolen. It was last seen by UPS in Seattle on Feb. 6, and they haven't located it yet. I'd think this would be enough time to find it if it had been put on the wrong truck or sent to a warehouse. They know its approximate value of $23,000 so I presume they've been looking pretty hard for it, and a 3x3x4 foot wooden crate weighing 445 lb. would seemingly be hard to overlook. I'd appreciate if you'd keep an eye out for anything unusual that might fit the description. The engine is a Continental O-200-A, serial number 66691-7-A. It's nearly new, with only about 450 hours on it. The log book is in the crate with it. It has an old serial number because it was a factory "overhaul" that consisted of building an engine from 100% new parts and putting the old engine's data plate on it. The only parts that aren't new are the data plate, eight Tempest fine wire plugs, and a factory overhauled carburetor I put on it 30 hours ago. It was on its way back after being repaired by Continental so it would be clean. Please let me know if you see anything for sale that might possibly be the engine or parts from it. The Seattle area is the most likely place for it to have been stolen -- if it was -- but it might have made its way to the Portland area. I'll post again if UPS finds it."" Hope he finds it.
