    I thought they'd be giving away Ted's plane!

    Better Than New Twin raffle... ;-)

    Pretty sure you don't want it right now. It's missing a left engine and a left engine beam for that left engine at present.

    I knew that wing wasn't for "a friend". You're building FrankenTwin trying to catch up to Clark! :)

    The wing was for a friend (although that trip has been postponed, another story). However we discovered some corrosion on one of the engine beams when changing the turbo on the left side. So, off it comes. Cessna never expected this to be replaced (or they didn't care) so it is extremely hard to remove. About 30 man hours in for removal.

    You can have mine, but you have to come get it and sweep the floor after you're done hauling all the pieces out

    The AI/CFI and another A&P found a crack in the exhaust before the turbo in the Seminole a couple days ago. And I thought THAT was going to be expensive...

    Exhaust is expensive on any turbo airplane. But engine beams are even more expensive, especially because you usually find some exhaust issues as well.
