Hey aero engineers:

Does anyone here know how much a busted turbojet or turbofan engine would cost (the bigger the better)? I intend to use it (the fan blades, specifically) for art, not for anything dangerous. Alternatively, how much would some big fan blades cost? And who on earth do I talk to to get them? Any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I see from your user info that you're in New England. My advice is to seek out a tech school that offers courses in Aviation Maintenance where you are. They usually can get obsolete hardware at scrap prices, either from the government or from corporate sources (airlines, air freight, repair shops, etc.).

I hadn't considered that. Thanks!
