    If I had the time, I'd get it and see what happens. 99% chance they'll cancel the order due to the mistake, but if not, daaaayyyuuummmm...

    Added to the cart, but looks like they want a direct bank transfer or e-check for payment--yikes! Either this is real or a real scam. :eek:

    "For items that require our white glove delivery service, we will manually calculate then email the most competitive delivery rate to you within one working day from receipt of your request."
    I feel like this is probably a white glove item.

    The price is the same, only the currency changed. From USD to GPB, and now to EUR.

    I don't think it's a scam just someone wanting to lower the price to 650.000,00, and accidentally entering 650,00.

    Regardless there is no way they'd honor that price.

    On second thought I Did some digging, the other ads on the site are fake too. Just clicked on a random "mansion" ad, the images were of an italian hotel.

    So scam. They'll wait until enough idiots transfer the $650 and bail

    30 years old, probably costs more than it's worth just to maintain.

    Oops! Good catch--I was just looking at the raw numbers versus the currency. :oops:

    Aircraft is different than automobiles. Generally, they have certain requirements for engine rebuilds, etc. based on the hours of use. Just because its old doesn't mean it wouldn't work. And aircraft maintenance in general whether it be a brand new helicopter or a 30 year old one is usually cost prohibitive (or else we'd all be flying around in helicopters instead of driving in cars).

    Its a 1986
    Airframe probably has documented proof of metal fatigue.
    It happens to older aircraft.
    FAA has it's priorities, namely, inspections required before it gets in the air.

    It'll never fly again.

    But...
    That turbine would probably power a helluva car/boat.....motorcycle ?!?
    Best use for the engine (that almost never wears out) is a generator.

    I ran across the 'bad gateway' error too, but refreshed it and page came up. I think their cdn is having some issues.

    If that's legit it's a steal. I'd love to part out something like that

    Didn't "hush-hush" used to be like an upskirt voyeur site like fifteen years ago?

    You're confusing hush-hush.com with hushhush.com.

    One proliferates pictures of snatch, the other proliferates flippin' sweet Eurocopters that you can... snatch, for up to 99% Off.

    Only one way to find out! Except that they probably want bank info for that too. :(

    It requires bank info so there's not much buyer protection in case it isn't legit. :eek:
