Concordsky For Sale On eBay

from the buy-the-Russian-cousin-of-the-Concorde-using-paypal dept

Someone is (really) trying to sell a Soviet-built supersonic Tu-144 jetliner (often called the Concordsky, for its similarity to the Concorde) on eBay. It’ll only run you $10 million. eBay actually took down the auction while they look into the legality of it, but the guy selling it insists that it’s for real, and would make a great buy. Some aviation experts feel otherwise. One guy is quoted as saying: “It’s a piece of junk. You don’t want be seen in it or around it.”
