    So when are you getting a 727 nose for the wall?

    I confess, my dreams are haunted by fantasies about owning this:

    you could make an extension on your house with that!
  • Vidiot 8y

    So very very cool, and undoubtedly quite rare.
  • Bob Pagani 8y

    So, T.L., what keeps you from owning it? Price? Practicality? Both?

    There is an outfit in Miami that does 1/10th scale Boeing noses.

    Price-wise, an aircraft nose typically goes for $3000 to $5000. The real issue is practicality: I'd want to turn it into a freestanding office/studio, but to do that I'd have to crane it over our house, as we don't have any direct street access to the back yard:

    (In theory, it would go between the short concrete retaining wall and the bamboo fence visible above.)

    Craning is expensive. And then they're Mrs. Telstar, who would need to be properly bribed to secure the necessary approvals. Complicated.

    Meanwhile, the PA thing had better wind up framed on your wall.

    Where did you photograph that? I'd love to get a whole view of the picture for hobby reference.
