That would be several billion dollars, then.

Talk about an over-exaggeration.

A few million. Calm down Kumanji.

Certain aircraft aren't allowed to be sold like the F-22a but I guess an older model you'd be able to pick up. I'm not sure how the government would feel about arming it though lol

Take all of that money and buy food to give to people instead.


Have you ever bought something you didn't need? You probably should have given the money to the homeless.

Unfortunately, you can buy and do anything these days if you have enough money...

I saw an old decommissioned Russian fighter jet on ebay once for about £10,000.

Although that may have just been the starting bid

there was a teacher in my high school (though she's retired) who had a MiG fighter jet.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

yeah, it was named "Stardust" so she used to alter Starburst packages (not the little twelve packs though, but larger bags) to say "Stardust," and she put them all up on the wall of her classroom. she said she would retire when she finished, but when she retired it was only about 3/4 of the way, but it was a pretty big classroom (probably at least 250' around the perimeter). not sure what kind of MiG though.

Jeremy Clarkson bought a decommissioned Lightning jet fighter for his garden a few years ago... doesn't work or anything, but i'm sure i read that he paid £2 million for it.

Yes, and I agree. I feel pretty bad about buying things I don't need, and I am reminded of one of my biggest shortcomings every day.

No it wouldn't.

Yes. Old fighter aircraft are regularly flown and maintained by private collectors, although it is, I believe, illegal to own one that's still in active/reserve service. But don't quote me on that last part.

E.g. L-39 Albatrosses have become something of a collectors favourite.

EDIT - In case you can't be arsed to click the link, your rough price is about 2 - 3 hundred grand.

Good luck finding a US jet that isn't ancient. They still keep F-4's as target drones, but they can be made airworthy with only minor modifications.

Man, the YF-23 was always the coolest.

More on topic: there's a dude at a local airport near where my dad works who keeps this old Corsair parked there. Never seen it fly but it's damn nice to look at. I think it's a Corsair, at least, it's been a while since I've seen it.

The newest thing I've ever heard of someone owning was an F-4 Phantom II. At least as far as the U.S. goes I think that's about as modern as you could get.
