    Wonder how long it will be before these are sticking out of the ground like lawndarts, that is if anyone can even afford them.

    Come here, the romanian air force does have some Mig 21 that they no longer use...as if they ever did :lol:. If you have enough money I'm pretty sure they'll sell you one :).

    I know some folks who work for Pride and they do excellent work. I love working on L-39s that they imported and put together - top notch. No doubt these aircraft will be in great shape.

    She knows, but said I could spend it on the family instead of a plane. I told her that the family doesnt have a cool paint job and go Mach 2.35. She said I could sleep on the couch tonight. :cry:

    If I were a dictator with oil money(or Bill Gates etc), I'd never fly in anything else again.

    If you have the money, you never have the time. It'll spend most of it's time in a hanger collecting dust. Probably get about 30 hours a year, max, of flight time. Would be a big toy.

    Might as well get an L39. Does the same stuff, cheaper. Probably easier to fly too.
