Posted Feb 9, 2011

A 7 year old boy bought a $113,000 Harrier Jump Jet T-Bird Aircraft XW269 on eBay. After his dad found out about the purchase, he quickly contacted the company selling the jet – Jet Art Aviation and told them his story. He asked Jet Art to cancel the sale. Jet Art put the auction back online after the cancellation. The airplane flew for the last time in 1997 after 26 years in the Royal Air Force. It was not working condition because of legal reasons and would have cost several million dollars to tune up again. [eBay via Fox]
