    Someone click it - I can do it from a VPN connection hosted in a cloud environment. But I'd rather not. . .

    It is about an airport auctioning off abandoned planes left on the property.

    Anyone know a good A&P in Nairobi?
    I just got a plane cheap and need an annual before flying it home.

    I sent an email: "I will be liking to purchase your aeroplane in Nairobi. Unfortunately, I am having trouble moving the necessary funds. However, I believe I have found a solution. If you will kindly give me your home address I will send you a cashier's cheque for 2000 euros over the asking price. Then if you will kindly meet me at the airport I will take delivery of the aeroplane and the 2000 euros.

    If you find that objectionable, kind sir, I can credit your American Express account if you simply send me the account number.

    Blessings to you,

    Xxxxxx"

    Of course it's legit. Nairobi Wilson is one of the busiest GA airports in the world. When I landed there in 2013 as I turned onto final I was told "Continue approach, you are number 7".

    I stayed on the field in a room at the aeroclub for about a week, a very cool place to hang out!

    There were planes parked *everywhere* so I'm not surprised they need to make some space.

    All of you who did not click that first link, take a "good job!" out of petty cash!

    No offense meant to OP, but tinyurl links aren't safe and not clicking them is the right cyber security reaction.
