Fantastic!

The only question I have is how much postage and handling will cost....

Unbelivable! I bet it's going to the US. And looks like no postage or handling charges will be added since the Russians are willing to re-engine it and fly it to the customer.

Awesome!!!

Looks like it´s quite easy to bid - just bid 10,000,000, as long as the reserve isn´t met, nobody can force you to pay up...

I'll chip in!

The only problem is this: if we all chipped in to buy it, in what livery would we paint it. I personally vote for Southwest's "Lone Star One" livery.

Don't try to guess on the reserve price. Sometimes if you bid the opening amount it can be the reserve price. I've seen it a few times.

WOW! Is that legal to even fly, because no airlines ever got one. Do you think this is a joke, the description was too vague to be real.

That's not too surprising. The former Eastern block has been selling Mig-21's even. I
heard you can buy one for around $50,000. They come cheap due to Soviet style
lean manufacturing and design. No fancy avionics, etc....and no armament of course.

As for ebay, I think they had a Saab jet fighter on sale once, for $40,000 I believe.

 Wow! WHAT A BARGAIN!!! Only 434 hrs clocked. That's like factory new!

I really wonder who's gonna buy the aircraft. And what about documents, maintenance support, etc...

It would be great if some leisure company or non profit aviation enthusiasts company (like with B-17 Sally B) bought the aircraft and would take it to all major airshows worldwide.

Soku39:

A reserve price is a price set by the seller. This is the minimum price he wants to have for the item. If it has not been reached at the end of the auction, then he doesn't have to sell, even if there have been bids. Why not make the start price of the auction the minimum price, you may ask. Well, by setting a low start price, you will get more bidders interested.



Best regards,
GR.
