Seller of vintage airplanes and helicopters, vintage aircraft parts retailer jacksonVILLE FLORIDA (WHTM) is offering a free collection of vintage airplane parts.
The site, called Aviation Vintage, has a small selection of parts for everyone from the iconic F-100 and F-4 Phantom to the smaller aircraft like the T-55 and MiG-15.
The collection includes airplane parts for vintage airplanes, helicopters, fighter planes, and other military vehicles.
The company said the collection was started in 2017, with the aim of making parts available to anyone.
“It’s been a real hit, we’ve had some great feedback,” Jacksonville-based pilot Mike O’Brien told WHTM.
“We have a bunch of people that have really loved the site, they’ve come and bought from us.”
For example, one person who bought a F-16 fighter jet, a MiG fighter jet for his wife, and a B-52 bomber for his son, and they’ve used parts from the site.
“They’re all wonderful parts,” said O’Brien.
He also said he’s seen a huge increase in the number of people wanting to buy parts online, from around 50 to 200 per day.
“People are getting it, we’re seeing more and more people wanting it,” O’Sullivan said.
“The customer service is amazing.
We’ve had a few people say, ‘Wow, I wish I could order a plane online,'” O’Reilly said.
O’ Reilly said he had to learn how to deal with people on the site before he could get a part.
“I’d have to talk to people in person before I could do that,” O’mre said.
While some people might be a little intimidated by online shopping, O’Orien said, it’s a good learning experience.
“If you go online, I don’t know how many people go online for the exact same thing,” O’day said.
