For those of you that don't know. It's been all over the place but there's a civilian SU-27UB Flanker for sale here in the Chicago area...

For those generous folks I need only $5 million dollars.

The DoD should buy it. Would make a great threat assessment simulator...

The DOD doesn't need to buy them because they already have them at Groom Lake.

Great aircraft for millionaires. This is a good warbird. Anybody will like it. I hope we will see the Flankers on a lot of airshow. I want this Su-27 for my Christmas present! Unfortunately I only need $5 million USA Dollar.

I found a video of #BLUE 31# N131SU:








Lets Fly! :)

Best Regards,

Péter

That thing will run with half diesel half canola oil, its Russian. When you guys buy it can you award me the maintenance/overhaul contract so i can charge you millions and get rich?

I am going to guess, that bird costs $12,000 - $15,000 per hour, to run.
