Former Pan Am 747 Can Be Yours for $150

The U.S. government is auctioning off this 747, which can be yours right now for $150. There are 6 days left in the auction, and no one has bid, so you should definitely swoop in there and pick up this beauty of an airplane.

The catch? Oh yes, there’s a catch. The plane, which rolled into service with United Airlines in 1970 before flying under the Pan Am colors (then being converted to Polar Air Cargo in 1994), must be disassembled and scrapped on-site (in New Mexico) by a company that the government authorizes. Hurry, because you only have 30 days to scrap the plane.

The government used the plane for training, and all of the parts have been ripped out, so you’re really buying about 160,000 pounds of aluminum shaped and painted like an airplane. Sure, that’s kinda awesome on its own, but you won’t be able to fly it.

The auction company thinks they’ll get $100,000 for it. But not if you grab it for $150.

  1. “MUTILATION BY THE BUYER IS NOT AUTHORIZED”

    Well, that’s unfortunate and kills the deal for me.
