6 ‘Top Gun’-Style Fighter Jets You Can Buy for Less Than the Price of a Supercar

Robb Report Logo By Howard Walker of Robb Report | Slide 2 of 8: Believe it or not, the fearsome, Russian-built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG 21 is still being flown today by Indian and Syrian air forces, more than 65 years after its maiden flight in June 1955. With over 11,500 built, it’s the most-produced supersonic jet in aviation history. It was, and still is, unbelievably fast, with a top speed of 1,390 mph and climb rate of an insane 770 feet per second. While most MiG 21s ended-up being mounted on concrete pylons as sad Cold War reminders, here is one you can buy for the price of a Lamborghini SUV. This 1974 MiG has been flying in the U.S. since 2002 under an Experimental Exhibition Certification and has 1,774 hours in total, around 224 since its air frame overhaul. That super-reliable Tumansky R-11 non-afterburner turbojet engine will need an overhaul in 226 hours, but it’s still said to be running strong. It’s being offered by St. Lucie, FL-based Raptor Aviation.    Learn More: Here
