You’ve always loved the look of military aircraft. Whether you’re staring at them in a book, watching them fly through the skies, or viewing them at an airshow, military aircraft are nothing short of a big deal to you.
That being said, you may have wondered what it would be like to own one of these incredible birds, or even if it’s possible to buy one for yourself. We can fill you in on buying military aircraft for sale, as well as other common questions you may have.
Is It Possible to Buy Military Aircraft for Sale?
Well, yes and no.
Of course, you aren’t going to be able to buy any aircraft that has weapons installed, yes we get asked this and as crazy as it sounds, our advice is not even to ask. The U.S. Government will not play games, so don’t plan on starting your own airforce.
For that reason, the aircraft that are available for purchase come without weapons and other militarized parts and modified so that you aren’t able to carry any. However, they still pack all of the power they had when they first hit the skies.
Most recently decommissioned aircraft or surplus models are available for purchase by the public, so if you want to get your hands on one, now’s the time to do so.
Where Would I Go to Get One?
Like with most things, the best way to find retired military aircraft is on the internet. Even if you don’t buy the plane, you can see which ones are on the market and get a look at what you might be interested in buying.
And don’t worry about it being illegal. As we’ve already mentioned, as long as the plane is modified not to carry military equipment (i.e., decommissioned from military service) a sale is legal.
Several private companies specialize in buying military aircraft and selling them to the public, so it would do you well to look into purchasing from these companies as well.
Is There a Limit to How Many I Can Buy?
No, you can buy as many aircraft as you like, assuming you can fit them all in your backyard!
Seriously, though, as of right now there are no limits to how many demilitarized aircraft you can buy. As long as you have the money to pay for and store them, you can have as many as you want.
