A former Blue Angel F-18 Hornet is for sale on ebay. Click here to view the sale. "It has been acquired legitimately," said Landa, who said he was visited by the FBI on Tuesday, a day after he posted the jet on the popular Internet auction site. Landa, an aircraft and telecommunications broker, is keeping a tight lip on the owner's identity. He met the owner in California while purchasing airplane parts. Wednesday afternoon, Blue Angels spokesman Mike Blankenship confirmed the aircraft's heritage. "According to the bureau number, it was a Blue Angels plane flown in the early '90s," said Blankenship, who has no clue how Landa acquired it. "It was stricken from the Navy's inventory in 1994." According to the Department of Defense, the Navy's planes are not usually sold to private citizens.

That would be fun to fly around where I live with Seymour Johnson AFB right down the road. Scare me some F-15 pilots!

If I had that kind of money I'd definetly buy it, just like I'd buy a trip to the space station as well.

Probably burns up 2-3k worth of fuel in a one hour cruise then another 2-3k per flight for the mechanic. Then when I think about I'd giive 10 k just for a ride.

i saw a special on the blue angels once on tv... i can't remember exactly, but the navy gives them those planes after some inane amount of airframe hours. i think it was like 2,500 or more... and that's a buttload for a military craft

[Edited on 5/2/2004 by cmdrkeenkid]


It doesn't really matter how many hours they have on them when their maintained properly. Not to mention it is currently disassembled which allows full tests on parts before reassembly, so the problem of hidden airframe fatigue is pretty much moot. Anyone with that kind of money is not going to get the thing rebuilt with out full xrays etc.
