Opening the Crate of Awesomeness!


Post Image

By far, one of the COOLEST crates that have ever arrived at our shop showed up the other day. ¬†Instead of telling you what was under the amazing piece of wood, I’ll show you.   I’ll give you a hint: ¬†BEECHCRAFT   This box hasn’t been open, ever! ¬†We were the first ones to open it since it was assembled. ooooooOOOOOOOOO What’s in there??????

Aviation Photography


Post Image

Aviation photography has been around since the late 1800’s. ¬†It first started with balloons and then either on the ground or in the air it took flight. ¬†People make a living off of “aviation art.” ¬†It’s one of my favorite areas of the art world. ¬†I love everything from sculptures to photography. ¬†Photography is by far my favorite though. ¬†An airplane doesn’t have to move, primp, or smile to be beautiful. ¬†It simply just is. ¬† I have been in […]

Another Day, Another Airplane


Post Image

Well another day, another airplane ends up on our trailer. This time it was a 1973 Skyhawk Cessna 172 from Louisiana. The story behind this plane is a student pilot ran it out of fuel and on the emergency landing he flared at 50 feet and pretty much flattened her like a pancake. I think he would of made it with less damage if he would of performed a better soft field landing. Oh well, I guess you live (luckily) […]

Where ya going? Crazy! Wanna come?


Post Image

Some people think what we’re doing is cool and some think we’re weird or nuts. ¬†Whatever your side is, I thought it would be interesting to document our adventures. A little background on this whole aircraft salvage business…back when I was in high school I wanted a truck as my first vehicle. ¬†So my dad said he would help me get what I “wanted” but I had to earn the money to buy it at an auction. ¬†Ebay was out […]
