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

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