SOLD?/ENDING BID: No.

SUMMARY: The owner of the plane had purchased it from a scrap yard and had offered to have the plane restored for a Buy It Now price of $9,000,000. The auction stated that the new owner could expect to pay roughly $40,000 a month for just 2 -3 hours of flight time due to the fuel consumption, up-keep, and other mandatory expenses.  After hearing of the auction, the FBI notified the seller that he could only sell the plane to an American citizen residing in the United States.  Furthermore, the plane could not leave U.S. airspace either.  The auction ended without a winning bidder.

STRANGE AUCTION #2
