Want To Buy An F-16? You Can!
Have you ever dreamed of flying with the Eagles, Hornets, Tomcats, and Raptors? Well, now you can, in your own F-16 Falcon!
There is a 1980 F-16 available for purchase on the Aviators Market website. (Buy it, I dare you!)
The F-16 Falcon first saw service in the United States Air Force in 1978, and is still, to this day, one of the most capable, agile aircraft to have ever flown.
Known to pilots and crew members as the "Viper", the F-16 is no longer being purchased by the US Military, but newer versions are still being produced and sold to overseas interests.
If you buy this aircraft (for a cool $8.5M) you'd be able to get from Lafayette to Baton Rouge in 2 minutes and 24 seconds, give-or-take. That's about 60 miles in about 2 minutes and 24 seconds. You do the math.
Anyway, if you, as a civilian, were to purchase this aircraft, you need to do 2 things. 1) convert the cockpit to a tandem-seat cockpit, and 2) give me a ride!
