Pitching at the other end of the country? Sick of tiresome traffic
Need to impress a client? These problems are easily solved when you’ve
got an L39 Russian Air Force jet.
This is no joke. The impoverished Ruskies are selling off surplus
fighters at bargain prices, and although pounds 150,000 is hardly loose
change, cut down on lunches at The Ivy and you could slip it through on
expenses, couldn’t you?
Air-conditioning and power-steering come as standard on the L39 and the
windscreen is anti-iced, so no more scraping frantically at the glass on
those frosty mornings.
On the downside, at around four miles to the gallon, it’s a bit of a gas
guzzler and you can’t just pop into your nearest Shell to fill it up.
But who cares when you’re doing 435 miles per hour at 36,000 feet?
It’s also had all military ordnance - that’s guns to you - removed, so
there’s no blowing up agencies you’ve fallen out with.
And if you’re dead set on getting one but can’t raise the cash, why not
convince your boss it would be a worthwhile investment when decorated
with the company logo? As the manufacturers will paint the plane to your
specification, you could raise some cash by selling ad space on
L39 fighter jet - pounds 150,000
