My guess is the Lawn Darts are Dutch or Belgian. They've got some early ones they'd just as soon part with I think.....

I would be cautious along with buyer beware, the picture shown is a F-16D not a F-16A, plus early block numbers have problems with over stressed wings.
I would help you but it is not in the contract

That's exactly why I've decided to keep looking.

Well, all three auctions have now been removed.


I did get a reply, though, after inquiring whether the transition from a 172 to an F-16 would be much trouble:


you only need 1000 hours and a check out.
call when your ready.
good luck

Obviously that 'company' was a fraud, but why is it seemingly inconcievable for a 21 or 16 to come into private (US) hands at this point in the game? Certainly there is no good argument against a 21, and considering there are 104's in private hands which are supposed to be faster then the 16... $$ Aside why not?

Hell if I wan exacutive going from MIA to EWR or JFK regularly even $20m for something I could take supersonic over the water would be a LOT better then $40m for a Gulfstream, though obviously even with an F-16B I'd be VERY limited on "PAX".

Indeed. The only thing it's made to haul is ass.

There are a few MiG-21s in private hands in the US I think, though I'd be willing to bet they don't see much flying. The 21 has some... err... unfavorable handling characteristics when confined in modern, crowded airspace.  bigthumbsup
