Exclamation New member needs infos

Hi guys!

My name is Pat. I'm from Granby, Quebec and I know sweet f... all in airplanes!!!

But I need some infos and after searching for a while on the net without success, I tought some passionate people like you could help me a little.

My boss is a dreamer! He's in some outdoor business and he came to me with a crazy project, PUT A PLANE ON THE ROOF OF HIS STORE

Here's how I need your help. Does somebody knows where I could find an old air plane or an airplane used with broken engine, stuff like that? Is there any junk yard for airplanes?

It don't need to work actually, I just need the structure, wings and if possible floaters. Everything inside coulb be scrap, it doesn't mather, as long as the plane itself is solid enough to be attached to a store roof.


Could you help me guys?

Oh yeah? You think?

I'm not used to internet, the only thing I found is about wireless airplanes.

What's the keyword I should type(sorry it's cause I'm french) to get real planes infos?

Thanks a lot for your time, it really helpful to me.

I would scout some of the insurance companies. They may have a plane that that you could buy as salvage. It takes a lot to trash an airframe without converting it to compressed pile of aluminum. You are most likely looking for an airframe that has exceeded it maximum rated airspeed without breaking up. (My dad did that once in the Navy.) In that situation, it usually wrinckles the skin and makes the airframe a canidate for a complete rebuild but it would still be presentable enough for your requirements.

I would start locally. Contact an aircraft dealer in your area and work from there.
....or here's a start www.aircraftdealer.com/aircraft_insurance.php
