Plane Caught Flying High, Now Under The Hammer At Wilsons Auctions

Wilsons News


In our Unreserved Prestige Auction on the 31st March at 7pm, we will be auctioning off a Cessna P210 Centurion aircraft.

This high wing, single engine, 6 seat, high performance, general aviation aircraft was recovered from a joint law enforcement agency operation in November 2014 after a North Yorkshire pilot attempted to smuggle drugs into the UK with an estimated street value of £5million. The plane was then confiscated and delivered to our Mallusk branch for disposal at this month's thrilling Unreserved Prestige Auction.

There are only seven Cessna 210 aircrafts on the UK and Irish register, and only one of these seven is the same model as the P210. The 1980 aircraft was professionally dismantled for search and storage purposes and has been rebuilt for display at our branch in Greater Belfast, Northern Ireland, in preparation for auction on the 31st March. Call in now to view the plane.

Alongside the plane, the Unreserved Prestige Auction will have a large number of high value items going under the hammer to include; cherished numberplates (2RC, 8RC, 49SE & 67RC), luxury cars & watches, a Harley Davidson Vrs cdx Night Rod Special, a Harley Davidson Fatboy FLSTFI, diamonds, other jewellery & more.
