Chinese Man Buys MiG Through eBay


From BBC News:

A Chinese businessman has bought an old MiG-21f fighter jet for nearly $25,000 (£14,000) on eBay to decorate his office, a Chinese newspaper reports.

Zhang Cheng bought the Soviet-made jet from a seller in the United States, where it is said to be in excellent condition though last flown in 1995.

“I have the buying power and my company has an empty space where I can display the plane,” he told the Beijing News.

But it was not immediately clear if Mr Zhang needed a permit to import it.
