To Purchase a Plane
Bruce decided to buy his Boeing 727 in 1999. He found one from Olympic Airways for purchase, which was based at the Athens Airport. He forked over $100,000, but then the real issues began. How was he going to get it to Hillsboro, Oregon?
Transporting the Aircraft
Transferring an airplane from Greece to Oregon was one of the most difficult tasks of the entire affair. He had to arrange the move, culminate the completion, and deal with a few other minor issues. This all cost him $120,000. Before he had even started to renovate the plane, he already spent $220,000! Still, it didn’t deter him because he got his money’s worth in many ways.
