“We have two years’ worth of left-behind items for the public due to a scaled-down, online-only event last year,” Dawn Bailey, manager of landside and terminal operations for the Allegheny County Airport Authority told local press.
Among this years’ offerings are nine abandoned vehicles including a fire truck, runway brooms and plows, 1,000 pieces of jewelry, a portable toilet seat, and an Elf on a Shelf.
In all of PIT’s 9-year auction history, it was the 2019 auction that saw the highest turnout. One of the biggest items sold that year was a former Allegheny County Bomb Squad truck for $8,500.
2020’s virtual airport auction saw a 2012 Chevy Silverado sell for more than $18,000, a 2018 Camaro go for $26,000 and a 2006 Nissan Murano for $1,100.
The October 23, 2021 PIT auction starts at 10:00 local time at the airport’s Heavy Equipment Building.
