    Where have I seen that photo before?

    I swear I've seen that same photo somewhere, and I don't mean in my cockpit.

    Very nice salvage piece, but I'd be checking very closely on the seller. 100% feedback in this case doesn't make me feel very easy. Not at all.

    Dated 092006? I'd be very wary. Don't waste your money.

    I knew I'd seen this somewhere before. Thanks for the memory refresher.

    I just wrote the seller a message asking to see the real quadrant, and said I knew where the original photo came from.

    We'll see what happens.

    Talking

    No pics on it at all now. See what you've done BSW Ha! I looked at the other items this person has sold, minor stuff for the 100%. Still makes one wonder why it is with no pics now.

    Just got a mesage from him via e-Bay.

    "I'm not selling the throttle quadrant, just the throttles."

    What the **** does that mean???

    Yes!

    Yes! It seems as if yet another possible joker has been misplaced by the watchful eyes of the community. It's very hard to 'pull a fast one' as long as we keep an eye out on this sort of stuff. Well done.

    Of course- if it's legit, I hope that he's able to repost and sell, but some how it's fishy now that it's been withdrawn...

    Always ask for recent photos and learn from my early experience. I ask for time/date stamped photos. If they dont want to due it I guess they dont need the money that bad.

    I've sold 3 727 quads on ebay for $750-800 cleaned and complete, I wouldn't spend over that. I also sold a 737 quad, and wouldn't go over 2000.00 unless they were a -300.-500 or 600 with the 3 bay. The guy I bought my real flight deck from was on crack when I asked for a -500 quad, he wanted 4500.00. He also asked for 25k for a 757 and 767 flightdeck, I told him to enjoy them all in a "nice" way.

    Always ask for recent pictures. When I fist attempted to buy a real flight deck, a broker out of Sunrise, FL told me he found a flight deck in Lake Charles, TX. I asked for photos. I got "photos" of a flightdeck but was told the quality was bad due the to camera and "only" the left side of the flight deck. I went ahead and rented a 17' flatbed and drove 14 hours to TX with the broker, $5000, and a fully loaded Glock 17 because of the money and I dont know this broker personally. I leave Orlando at 6pm after working 12 hrs and drive 14 hours. I get there and see the remains of a cockpit with holes in it. It looked like it was parked at Bagdad airport during the first war. I was told "then", that it was used to teach skinning to students. As soon as I saw it I knew it was a 727. It didn't have the control colums, quad, rudder pedals....NOTHING!! in as in the photo. I asked what the H*LL is going on. The seller had a very FAKE surprised look on his face. Long story short either the broker or seller had photo shopped a 737 photo onto a photo of the fligjtdeck and blurred it to hide the crop lines becaus e the same banner was in front of the flight deck. The the seller says, "well you drove this far, you might as well buy it".

    Options:
    Pros: Shoot both and drop bodies in bayou off I-10, many positives, satisfaction of stopping these scammers form doing this to someone else, make the drive home more palatable, save $5000, good grouping on targets. I reeeally wanted to follow thru on this one.

    Cons: Won't see family for 10-20 years

    I left broker behind and both alive and drove back another 14 hrs.
