Got $28 Million? You Can Own Your Own Air Force One

Got $28 Million? You Can Own Your Own Air Force One
Jennifer Billock

Have you ever wanted to own your own private presidential jet? Well, now you can have one— sort of; the Japanese version of Air Force One just went up for sale in an online listing, available for purchase for $28 million. But maybe it’s worth it for royalty-level flights?

If you’ve ever wanted to own your own jumbo jet, now is the time for you to take action. The Japanese version of Air Force One just went up for sale in a listing on aviation trade publication Controller. The jet, a Boeing 747-400, was built in 1991 and has flown not only the country’s emperor but also 14 prime ministers. It has 85 first class and coach seats, a bedroom, a lounge, a shower, an office, and a secretary cabin for secretaries and other staff of the Imperial Family and prime minister.

The listing boasts that the plane is almost factory new level with very low flight time—it’s only banked 16,332 hours in the air.

“One of the lowest time Boeing 747-400’s in the world,” the listing says, reported by CNN Travel. “Aircraft has been maintained to the highest possible standard.”

You’ll have to pony up a pretty big chunk of money to purchase the plane, though; the asking price is a whopping $28 million. The plane is one of a duo of planes for the Japanese government that was both retired. They’ll be replaced by two Boeing 777-300ER jets.

    I’ve got the $28M, but I don’t think it’ll fit in my garage, so I’ll pass :)

    I would want a matching pair so I will have to pass. Maybe I’ll but when the two current US Air Force ones go on the market.
