DETROIT (WWJ) – In an ongoing effort to raise money for Detroit Public Schools, the district continues to auction off items that have been sitting in storage.
WWJ Newsradio 950’s Laura Bonnell reports that, if you’re in the market for an antique aircraft engine, you’re in luck.
Jennifer Mrozowski with the Detroit Public Schools says that’s one of the unique items up for grabs in the online auction.
“These are going to be surplus World War II-era airline engines, propellers — vintage items dating back to the World War II era,” Mrozowski said.
Detroit public schools began auctioning off items in October and have since raised $380,000. The items were donated years ago to Davis Aerospace Technical High School.
The auction runs from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 19.
