Item specifics For Sale is a 1959 Mig 17F fighter jet aircraft. This airplane was built in Poland as a LIM 5 with afterburner. Serial number 1C1423. The aircraft has nice paint and is in original unmodified condition. Sale includes the airframe, VK1F afterburner engine, Polish airframe and engine logbooks and 2 under wing fuel tanks as shown in pics. The aircraft served with the Polish airforce, 34th PLM at Gdynia, Poland. It was imported to the USA in 1993. The aircraft is not currently registered with the FAA and has not been certified. The airplane is not currently airworthy and no representations regarding its airworthiness or certification are made by Seller. The aircraft had some water damage in the cockpit from water that previously leaked in around canopy seal. That would need restoration as a part of airworthiness process. Additionally, some small elevator corrosion repair needed. Engine turns freely but was not started by Seller. The cold war Migs have become hard to find and true collector items, whether for flight or display. The Mig 17 has become rare to find and this is a beautiful example. Airworthy- certified Mig 17"s sell for over $100,000. I purchased the airplane planning to restore it for flight but decided I want a different project. It is located near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will need to be moved by buyer after the sale. Buyer is responsible for all costs to move the aircraft. Currently stored at Arnold Palmer Airport. The aircraft is being offered in "as is" condition with no warranty or Seller representations, other than what is contained herein. Seller has good title. Look at photos for condition or contact me with questions. Buyer is responsible for disassembly and shipping . Seller can assist Buyer in arranging disassembly and shipping.
