Boeing 747 Airframe Offered For Sale On eBay

Reserve Bid Was $299,000, But Listing Ended By Seller

If you've ever wanted to own a Boeing 747 airframe, or you're scavenging for parts for one, you may have missed one of the best opportunities to come along in some time.

The Concorde Alliance is a digital media company in Orlando Florida that produced a "virtual 747" video using an airframe from a boneyard. They later offered the airframe for sale on eBay.

According to the description posted to the auction site:

"We are pleased to offer the retired airframe Boeing 747-422 N171XX.

"The Boeing 747-400, also knows as the Queen of the skies is the first wide-bodied jet in the World. It has a wingspan of 211.5 ft and an overall length of 232ft. From the ground to the top of the tail is almost 64 feet and a fuselage that is 21 feet wide.

"The engines are already removed and the landing gear will also be taken off the plane (available for purchase) and the plane is ready to be prepped for shipment. Based on the buyer's needs. We have all of the capabilities to disassemble and transport the plane in sections. It is also possible to section out the plane out if you only require the fuselage, cockpit or the wings. 

"The cockpit can be used by all of the sim builders as the framework for one of most realistic replicas. We will have a separate auction just for the cockpit section as well. 

"We also have almost all of the interior including the seats and all of the interior liners and galley equipment.

"There are about six million parts inside a 747-400 and they cost $250 million when new. We are happy to work with you to get you the parts that you need for any and all of your aviation related projects. In the past, we have seen retired 747 airframes converted into restaurants, hotels and even apartments for full time living. Also the huge wings were used as roofs. Some of our parts are also used to create modern aviation furniture and large scale art projects.

"Due to the highest standards of construction of these airframes along with their lifelong servicing and maintenance, it is hard to find a section of the plane that shows any kind of wear and tear The fuselage itself is insulated better than any regular construction project and is much easier and lighter than steel or wood due to the lightweight aluminum.

"We will work with you closely and advise you on all of your transportation needs and have the capability to arrange all of the logistic. The price of the auction does not cover the labor and the transportation cost. This aircraft is now retired and is not certified to re-enter service and sold as is.

"If you are interested in the whole or a section of this aircraft, as well as any other aircraft parts for your needs. Feel free to contact us anytime."

The reserve price for the auction was set at $299,000, but no bids were received and the listing was ended August 30.
