Mar. 20 - A recent survey of AOPA members indicates that more than half of the 517 respondents would sell, or probably sell, the Waco UPF-7 sweepstakes airplane if they were to win it in January 2004. The aircraft is fully restored and will make its first public appearance in Lakeland, Florida, at the Sun 'n Fun EAA Fly-In in early April. The survey shows 236 members wanting to keep the airplane, 153 selling it shortly after winning it, and 128 who would like to keep it but would probably end up selling it. The $250,000 airplane is quite a prize, either as a flying machine or a cash producer. Even after taxes are paid, an AOPA member could expect to be at least $150,000 better off than before entering. AOPA members are entered automatically when they join or renew.
