Fight Against Maturity

Just the thing for commuting


A Somerset man has bought a £35million Harrier jump jet on eBay for £10,000. Neil Banwell won an online auction for the aircraft which led the first attack on Port Stanley during the Falklands War, reports the Mirror.

Dad-of-three Neil, 39, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw one on eBay so I jumped at the chance. It was my daughter Jess’s 14th birthday and she put the bid on for me. We then went out to a barbecue and the next morning we found out we owned a Sea Harrier.”

The 46ft-long aircraft is now being stored in a hangar near his home in Wedmore, Somerset.
Complete with cannons but, sorry, no engine.
