      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.

    footage at 1:26 isn't 1991 USSR coup attempt. It is the successful coup of 1993, when boris yeltsin (supported by USA) sent the army in to kill the russian parliament and gave himself dictator powers. The building being shelled by tanks was the Russian parliament building.

    Gee, those exclusive air rights to USSR ought to have cash value. Couldn't have they sold these to, you know, an ACTUAL airline?
    If USSR wouldn't acknowledge the right to sell, they could have had an established airline do it as a "code share" of sorts.

    just wanted to let you know as a native Long Islander, the town is pronounced EYE-slip, not ISS-lip...don’t feel bad though, virtually every town on Long Island is some form of Native American language. it IS pretty damn funny to watch visitors/tourists who have never been here before try to pronounce town names like Ronkonkoma 😂
