Former Presidential Aircraft Hits the Auction Block

Former Presidential Aircraft Hits the Auction Block


From airplanes to washing machines, fire trucks to Navy vessels, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) provides consumers a wealth of opportunities to give new life to surplus property through GSA Auctions.

While occasionally, the auction site will get a high-profile item like this DC-9 that flew presidents, vice-presidents, and other dignitaries for more than 30 years, everyday items such as office furniture, shop equipment, and computer gear generate $120-150 million in savings per year according to David Robbins, Director of GSA’s Office of Personal Property Management.

Auctions not only save taxpayer dollars by eliminating disposal fees, but they also help reduce the government’s environmental impact by keeping excess items from ending up in landfills.

In addition to personal property, GSA also auctions off a wide variety of vehicles through GSA Fleet, as well as excess real estate like the Army Ammunition Plant that just sold for $28 million.

So the next time you need a car, a computer server or even a presidential aircraft, think about placing a bid at GSA Auctions.
