Someone buys a car, someone flat, and someone plane. We wondered if it was possible to buy a real combat aircraft in private hands.

    And where is it really fighting aircraft? Some of them, in principle, were never combat. And, say, Corsair without machine guns - a combat aircraft?

      All of them are sold definitely disarmed, most of them were real combat aircraft, at the very least, training aircraft (adopted as part-time light attack aircraft), which is not so significant, since we are talking about buying for flight rather than combat experience. Some nitpicking is not the topic. Another thing is that it is painful to listen to the storyteller; he does not speak the language very well.

        And he probably likes more. He generally does not seem to be on the topic of aviation, he reads extracts from Wikipedia on a piece of paper. Yes, and the text itself is selected one thousand nine hundred and nineteen thousand ... in quantity .... until piece by piece .... you can fall asleep ... Nafig with a century to clarify, just in the 80s .... It’s dry and sluggishly. In general, you can buy and instantly, officially in private hands - sold in the states.

      F4U is already a collectible. Neither Corsair, nor another plane from this ten will be at war. Well, tell me, why is a collector armed with an airplane?

        Here's how the De Havilland DH.112 Venom can cost $ 50t. Most likely not flight specimens. We opened an aircraft sales site and rolled up prices (regardless of condition). A jet flying fighter cannot cost so much. request

        and why tanks? I somewhere came across that in the USA there are about 200-300 tanks and armored personnel carriers in private collections. just an example the first one came across:
        Sean Mitchell from Norfolk has a special passion for military equipment - he devotes all his free time to collecting real tanks, air defense guns, military jeeps and other vehicles, turning his courtyard into a real private museum. Sean's impressive collection includes an 8-ton Saber tank, a World War II military truck, a 20 mm Polsten anti-aircraft gun, a 1929 Carden-Lloyd wedge, an Abbot self-propelled artillery system, and two light reconnaissance armored vehicles Ferret.
        The collection is such a thing ...

          When a military equipment or weapon is transferred to a collector, it is brought into an unfit condition. Trunks are cut, or vice versa, brewed, locks or locks break, sometimes in a completely barbaric way, such as a hammer, if only the appearance would not be affected. On airplanes, weapons are removed and replaced with dummies. I read a lot about weapons and equipment collections in different countries, the rules are almost the same everywhere, with slight differences. hi

    The F-5 was always a Tiger, not a Freedom fighter. This has probably recently been renamed a freedom fighter ... Americans do not cease to amaze with such epic names.
