Florida man sells 'fully functioning' F-16 fighter jet online - only $8.5M

Palm Beach, Fla — A Florida man wants to sell a ‘fully functioning’ F-16 fighter jet that was acquired from Jordan.

And this jet is not a stripped down model, but a ‘fully functioning’ used fighter jet, an F-16 Viper.

The 1980 multi-role fighter jet, which has an $8.5 million price tag, is being offered alongside two other F-16 Vipers, according to The Drive, an automotive website that also writes about defense topics.

This is not your average “used” fighter jet — the plane is a fully functioning combat aircraft and not demilitarized.

Jet Lease, a private aircraft leasing and purchasing company with offices around the globe, purchased the used aircraft from Jordan, which acquired dozens of secondhand F-16s from NATO allies Belgium and the Netherlands between 2008 and 2017, The Drive reported.

The aircraft can reach a maximum speed of Mach 2.05 at 40,000 feet, or nearly 1,573 miles per hour. It has a maximum range of 2,400 miles and an initial climb rate of 62,000 feet per minute, according to Jet Lease.
