How would you like to own a piece of aviation history?
There is an online auction of two F-100 Super Sabre jet fighters stored at the Mojave Air and Space Port. The Super Sabre was the first supersonic jet in the U.S. inventory. After they were retired from military service, these two jets were used as experimental aircraft.
The jets have been sitting out there for years now. The dry desert heat has probably preserved them well. One piece of advice to buyers: check for snakes. Snakes on the plane, in the plane, under the plane, anywhere near the plane. Just…be careful.
The auction also includes other surplus items from the Mojave spaceport and an electrical engineering school. Two Humvees used by the U.S. Forestry Service are among the items.
Act soon. The lots begin to close on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at 6 p.m. PDT.
