7-year old buys a $113K Fighter Jet on eBay – DOH!
A rambunctious seven-year-old London boy almost bought Thursday his very own real-life Harrier fighter jet on eBay for $113,515 (£69,999).The little guy hit the “buy it now” button to purchase the restored X RAF 4 SQN Harrier Jump Jet Aircraft XW269 with actual missiles attached.
Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.
Unfortunately, his dreams were shattered the same day, after his dad found out about the purchase and quickly contacted the company selling it—Jet Art Aviation—telling them the story and asking to cancel the sale. Obviously, they understood it and put it back on the auction block.
The Harrier Jump Jet T-Bird Aircraft XW269 currently on sale was last flown in 1997, after 26 years of service for the RAF.
He should have used his Pepsi Points instead.
