Participate in EAA ‘Second-Chance’ Aircraft Auction
This Stinson SR-10, documented to have been flown 140 time by Jimmy Doolittle himself, can be yours in the Second Chance Online Post Auction.
August 26, 2010 — Miss out on buying the wings of your dreams at the Spirit of Aviation Auction held during AirVenture 2010? No need to fret; you have another chance to acquire one of 46 aircraft available through the Second Chance Online Post Auction, which is running now through August 31 on the AirVenture website.
Conducting the auction are real-estate auction company REDC and Auction.com, working in conjunction with EAA. Proceeds will benefit EAA’s youth and educational programs.
Turn your dream of owning and flying your own Grumman FM-2 Wildcat into a reality. Take the controls of a fully restored 1938 Stinson SR-10 that was flown 140 times by American aviation pioneer Jimmy Doolittle.
The brand new Thunder Mustang offered at auction will give you the all of P-51 styling, modern technology, and performance you’re looking for without the hassle of maintaining a 60-year-old airplane.
A piece of showbiz history is yours for the taking as well. Beautifully restored to its original glory in 2002, the Cessna 310D Songbird III at auction is fully documented as being used in the famous television series Sky King. It features a new “R” style panel with center-mount radios, a full slate of avionics and new leather interior.
They are waiting for you to fly them home, along with other notable aircraft such as a Beechcraft King Air 90, Socata TBM 700, Cessna Citation 501, 1936 Waco YKS-6, and Cirrus SR22 G-II.
