Max out your credit card – well, OK, a few credit cards – and buy yourself a 747-400 air frame.
If you’ve got an extra $900,000 of disposable cash, you can buy Lady Penelope.
Now, before the human trafficking police start an investigation, here’s the deal: There’s an offer on E-bay to purchase a retired Virgin Atlantic 747-400 air frame for $900,000 (the starting bid is $299,000).
During its 25 years of service in the Virgin Atlantic fleet, the plane was known as “Lady Penelope.”
The engines have been removed and the seller is ready to accept an offer and move the air frame to the buyer. The air frame is also offered in sections – fuselage, cockpit – and the remaining parts are also available for sale. Shipping or engines to power this Queen of the Skies is not included.
