    727, Why not take the whole thing home??

    The school I went to for my A&P had a 727 donated to them by
    FED Ex.

    The original plan was to fly it in as light as possible, but it never happened. The runway would not support it. Plus it is surrounded
    by residential.

    Here is a link to a video of the move.

    When I was attending the company i worked for donated two
    JT-9D engines from a 747.

    Could just stuff the plane as far as it goes into the garage, and use the fuselage as garage, but it would probably kill the neighbours.

    I would love to have it stuffed in my garage, with the fuselage and wings sticking out. So it would look like it had an emergency landing into my garage.

    How cool would that be.

    Am I an maniac? Oh no, Crazy? no no no,
