Buy A Retired Virgin Atlantic 747 For $900,000

A retired Virgin Atlantic 747 jet is currently for sale on eBay for the cool buy it now price of $900,000 — less than the price of a freestanding home in areas like DC or San Francisco, or many upper-end NYC apartments. The “Lady Penelope” retired after more than 25 years in the air and has a current bid of just $299k.

The jet, which has already had the engines removed, does not fly, but would make a cool collector’s item for an AV geek. You can also purchase just the fuselage, the wings, or cockpit. The airliner, which cost a cool $25 million when new, is ready to be shipped to its new buyers and can be disassembled and transported in sections.

Vintage aviation fans will love this well-preserved jet, which has much of the interior, including seats, all interior liners, and galley equipment still intact. It also has a unique feature: a large illustration of Virgin’s iconic “flying lady” on both sides of the tail section.

Don’t have room for a plane in your backyard? You could turn this into a restaurant, hotel, an apartment or more, the listing suggests. You could even turn the wings into your roof! The painted parts, measuring 5o’ by 30′, could also be made into unique custom artwork.

 

h/t to View from the Wing for spotting this awesome offering. 13235607_1010871785670069_2542548353546817183_o 13247686_1010871999003381_3421272611648452244_o 13301372_1010872899003291_7455104492749996725_o   13246316_1010870705670177_8173103822455386020_o
