It's only a model.

That is great!!! I have been good this year Santa.

With that price I am guessing they have the engine. They are always selling Mig's with no engines. You need the letter of intent though. And what country. There is no way in hell the FAA would let a civilian take that thing up.

This is to funny. Maybe there is a deluxe package that comes with sidewinder missles.

I dont know because I really dont know, but maybe the red tape involved buying it from a private owner is less than buying it new from the manufacturer?

I just don't see it possible that they could sell that thing with a working engine in it. Maybe that is why they ask for letter of intent and country. The seller must expect you to be government. But why would ANY government be shopping on ebay(to buy f-16's i guess:mnky


Can you imagine if a terrorist got his hands on it, or those crazy militia people. Or what if Bill Gates bought it? Think he has a monopoly now...just wait till he has an F-16 to scare away competition.

Sure they would. All you have to do to certify a retired fighter is to remove the weapons systems, and I believe do it in a way that they can't be reactivated.

5. FORMER MILITARY AIRCRAFT. Many of the aircraft that are presented for airworthiness certification under the purpose(s) of exhibition or air racing are former military aircraft, both U.S. and non-U.S. The FAA acknowledges the significant role military aircraft have played in our aviation heritage and the importance of preserving their legacy for future generations. The exhibition of former military aircraft at aviation events for demonstration and display provides the public a rare view into our aviation past. Therefore, it is the policy of the FAA to permit the operation of surplus military aircraft for civilian use, consistent with the need to safeguard the general public.

NOTE: It should not be interpreted that all military aircraft require experimental airworthiness certificates. Some have valid type certificates and could be eligible for a standard airworthiness certificate

As long as it's not capable of being armed, and you have the experience and facilities to maintain it in an airworthy condition, then there is no reason for the FAA to keep you from flying it.
