One thing you can always count on in this technology based era, is that some nut ball is going to step forward and try and turn a buck out of anything, and so it is today as someone has taken the bold step of posting an ad on Craigslist for an airplane, and not just any airplane, but the still missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370, a Boeing 777 airliner which has been missing for some time now.
The ad, which was posted on the Vietnam Craigslist for $15 million, says that the plane is for sale “as is, where is”, apparently is low on fuel, but does include all the snacks and nibbles still on board. There are a few anomalies with the ad: First of all, it posts a second price in the local currency of 1.5 million Dong, which converts to about $70, so either there’s not much call for a personal 777 in rural Vietnam, or the poster didn’t do too well at math.
The really sad part about this that there is probably somebody somewhere who is seriously considering buying the plane, although there is no contact information listed, so actually making a deal could prove to be somewhat awkward.
Anyway, got to run now, I just have to reply to a message I received from an ex Crimean official who wants me to hole 2-hundred million dollars for him as soon as I pay the wire setup costs to $30,000.
