Actually two cars and a helicopter... all boxed and in excellent condition. I\'m surprised I got them at all, until I remembered it wasn\'t ebay but the local New Zealand TradeMe I was bidding on. They weren\'t cheap, but not necessarily outrageous either.

The L.A. County Calif Sherriff\'s Office still flys one of those birds out of Long Beach airport. It\'s got to be going on 60 years old, they use it for search and rescue operations, and have three more there for spare parts. It\'s a big bird up close...Great score on these, and with the boxes even better!

Thx OT, I\'ve had the heli close on to thirty years now, so this will be my second.
If ever there was a rare Matchbox, this one would be it.

Ta for the history. It\'s amazing the amount of aviation history still flying about.
