    Another CNN one (hopefully just a funny juxtaposition by itself regardless of political leaning):

    Pull out the knife! It hurts! LOL.

    Sorry Ted. That’s awesomeness right there.

    But I’m that sarcastic sort. :) At least I’m the happy kind.

    Actually, another point I've long since made is that damage done to an engine often doesn't manifest itself today or tomorrow, but years later. So when you buy a used airplane, how the previous owner(s) treated it will come back to haunt you.

    The previous owner of the 414, while a nice old man who'd been flying for 50 years, really didn't know anything about engines and I know treated it wrong. The previous owners, hard to say, don't know them. Plus the plane sat... a lot. My wife told me she was surprised we got this much time out of the engines. I more or less figured that this was about how much time we'd get out of them.

    Yeah I hear ya. With your background in engines I always knew you, of all people here, probably knew what you were getting into with that airplane. :)

    I had a funny thought the other day though. I wonder if Wayne Bower was still on here if he would have chewed your butt for buying it, or just chuckled and told ya to be ready with the checkbook. :)

    Fun stuff. Carry on! It’s not like most of us wouldn’t be lying if we said we weren’t jealous of it when it’s not down for MX! :)

    As I've said many times, we went into it planning on it needing props, engines, avionics... basically everything. And in reality it's been a good bird that's done its job quite well. When you consider that in about 20 months we've flown it 250 hours in spite of the downtime, that's pretty good. Most of these planes are ~100 hour/year birds, and that's without having long periods of downtime. It'll probably be a more solid 200 hour/year bird (maybe more) once we get the new engines on. Oh, but it does need avionics...

    Wayne would've laughed. He knew that I knew what I was getting into. And we're still managing to operate it far cheaper than almost any other 414 operator, just as I did with the 310. The Aztec I was still learning on but still operated it pretty economically.

    It's a plane that has a job to do, and really it does it very well. Now to raise the money for the engines...

    Buying any used plane is a crap shoot, you can do your best due diligence, but in the end, who knows?

    Exactly. And even if you have engines that you get from new, there are enough issues that have occurred that you still get a bit of a crapshoot. You make the best decisions you can engine wise, take care of them as best you can, and hope for the best.
