How You Can Own and Fly an F-16 or SR-71 Jet

They will get you where you need to go too, as long as you’ve got a good grip!

 

Say you’re in the market for a nice pre-owned fighter jet or cold-war era spy plane, but maybe you don’t have the $10M to shell out for an F16. Who knows what a used SR-71 would cost, a tail fin sold on eBay in 2012 for $1M and that’s just a piece of the baddest plane ever made. In 1964 when they were new, each SR-71 cost about $34,000,000; in today’s dollars that’s about $350,000,000. Long story short – it would cost a heap of dough to own one of these.

But, what if you had a little skill, a lot of time and small lump of cash? Then you could build your own scale version of these iconic planes and terrorize the neighborhood!  Just think how fast you could deliver the cat to it’s Vet appointment?

First up, check out the 1:4 scale F16 Falcon painted in the ultra-intimidating Royal-Netherlands Air Force Orange and silver or as we would call it in Ohio “Hunter Orange.”

 

Next is a slightly smaller, 1:8 or 1:10 scale SR-71 with a “pulse jet” engine. Very fast and loud!
