What a bargain!

Recommended Posts

OK, so this is a very tenuous link to FSX, but I felt so good about this that I had to share it.

 

I was doing some spotting at LHR with my Dad on Saturday and we found out that there was a massive aviation enthusiasts fair at LGW on the Sunday, so we popped along.

 

Whilst rummaging through people's items for sale, what do I find? Only a full A320 FCOM, complete with a pilot's annotations, highlights, etc.

 

The price of this luxury item? A whopping £1. That's right, ONE POUND!

 

This little beauty will keep me occupied whilst I eagerly anticipate the FSL A320...see - slightly FSX related :D Sadly I couldn't find out what airline it was from.

 

I also managed to find the identical equivalent from an Air 2000 757 so picked that up for my brother who enjoys flying the JustFlight 757 for FS2004. Also £1 :D

Copilot: Captain have you ever flown a 777 before?

Captain:Nope,but we got a strong tail wind and the bar in Hong Kong stays open till 5am, so lets kick the tires, light the fires and, get the hell outta here.

With all that scribbling in it, I'd have knocked him down a bit.

 

50p or I walk away...

Definitely Bargain of The Year! A good scoop, and even better spotting it.

Very nice score! I paid $20 at a swap meet for a 757 manual (an Old National Airlines one) and thought I got a deal. Another cool thing I picked up at that meet was an Air Canada route briefing notes booklet.

I know your just jesting :smile: ... but in all seriousness, the scribbling is probably one of the most valuable parts. Presumably being notes written by pilots in training.

 

* Of course, if the scribbling is a prospective ATP's shopping list for Tesco, I retract my comment. :lol:

My favorite bargain "junk" item is the tons of the leather Jeppesen binders I've found abandoned. You wouldn't believe the amount of $50-$100 binders people throw out! I've stopped my collection at a total of six, and only use two for my Jeppesen approach plate and FAR subscription.
