Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

L-39:


One of them was at my former home airport for years. It landed due to engine trouble. It ended up being pushed into a grass tie-down and left there. It was a huge hornet's nest.

Eventually, somebody bought it. It was disassembled and trucked out.

A former auto executive kept one at YIP. He busted into Class B airspace numerous times during the climb out and return descent. Got to a point where YIP tower would alert us whenever he was taxiing out.

Buying a former military aircraft is a great way to find out why they have attractive price tags...;-)
