    I hit a big wire doing about 130, sliced a wing off and in I went tumbling every direction. It was on fire as soon as I came to a stop, I don’t know how I never lost consciousness, I’d be dead if I...

    It’s a legitimate point. Older radios and avionics certainly don’t add to a planes value, but they don’t seem to be a huge drag on the purchase price either, it’s way down the list of things that...
