Announcing  a package sale of two historic disassembled and complete "Nifty-Fifty"  Cold War Jet Fighter Aircraft.


A rare opportunity to obtain rare historical and classic jets for a fraction of their restored value. Simple cable controlled and with basic systems, these aircraft will be basic restoration projects without the need for any costly rebuilding. Just rebuild systems and reassemble.  


Currently neither of the type are flying or under restoration to fly.  Exclusive opportunities and airshows certainly await. 


Historic for their active and primary front line role in the Korean War, these jets were America's first jets with punch. The F-84 was the first NATO jet deployed. Both jets were the first of their kind to fly with the famous American Display teams: The F-84G "Thunderjet"  was the first  aircraft type to be used with the USAF Thunderbirds. The F9F-5  "Panther" was the first first jet type to be used with the USN  Blue Angels. Globally other NATO countries used the jets for their National Teams.


Notable pilots making their mark in history flew these fighter types. America's first man in space, John Glenn, the first man on the Moon, Neil Armstrong, Baseball great Ted Williams and others.   


The F9F-5   has two (2) engines preserved in cans with test cell log books.

The F-84G  has installed engine without logbooks

Numerous spare and new parts collected over 10 years.


The sale price of the aircraft and the estimated restoration for each aircraft is favorable and not requiring

significant labor costs.
