A Chinese businessman, Zhang Cheng, bought a Soviet-made MiG-21f fighter jet fighter jet on eBay. He paid $25,000 to the seller, located in the US, though it is not yet clear if he will even be able to import the plane into Beijing, let alone what it will cost. The plane is in excellent condition and, according to the seller, was last flown in 1995. Cheng plans to use it to decorate his office, stating that "I have the buying power and my company has an empty space where I can display the plane."
Clearly, Cheng has a very large office, but I still want to know how he intends to get it inside.
