angelfj, so far not a bad price, perhaps one could talk them into kicking in a couple of "miss-isles" as well, i hope the buyer has an equal amount of bucks for training, its not called a "jump" jet cuz ya can just jump in it and fly away, :nonono:, oh did i mention the amount of fuel that thing sucks up? :rolleyes:

It is being sold without an engine.

So right now, ~my Aeronca~ (https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/aeronca65t/my_plane_air65tl.jpg) would beat it. :jester:

If it's being sold without an engine, right now my running shoes could beat it! :smile:

Use it as a glider maybe? Yes, like a rock...

I can just see my neighbors as I set the thing up in my front yard on cinder blocks...

That would be *awesome*! One of my neighbors hates the garage I built in my backyard, and has been really nasty since it went up. Sticking a fighter in the backyard on blocks would be icing on the cake. Yeah, baby! :devilgrin:

To bad the armaments have been removed. Would have been much more effective for taking care of nasty neighbors.

Here's an old airliner used as a ~Airport Store~ (https://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-photos/photos/5/5/3/0714355.jpg). It's about 15 miles from me.

I came to America on a Lockheed Constellation. <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif
