Here is a rare opportunity to own a real warbird. This unique airplane was built in 1957 and exported to France for use by the French Air Force in Algeria. It was brought back to the United States in 1983 and re-registered with a U.S. certificate of airworthiness. An engine swap in 2009 and some TLC by the current owner and this airplane is a great performing warbird with a real service history. Bought at an estate sale this plane is available for well below current market values.
Export and Global Delivery is available.
All trades considered.
