      Hello, I live on Long Island. It's Worth noting, Islip IS pronounced "I-slip" !!!! NOT "Is-lip" !!
      Please do some investigation of pronunciations before saying them. Thank you.

                    I mean can get a 747 easily for at or below $2 million. But you are most likely only getting the actual "chassis" of that aircraft. Airlines usually have the engines and all the avionics removed (sometimes even the flaps) when they send aircraft to a yard for storage.
