Paul Allen buys a MiG-29 jet fighter


When you have the power and the money you can buy the world. Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen believes so and he is proving it by purchasing a MiG-29 jet fighter. Currently on display at his private museum in Everett, Washington, he will have it delivered to a private place soon. The MiG was part of the Ukrainian air force and was bought by John Sessions. No price has been disclosed but we can only imagine the worth of this opulent purchase. Allen is well-known for his grand collection which includes a 414ft-long Octopus yacht, Portland Trail Blazers basketball team, the Seattle Seahawks gridiron team and a stake in the Seattle Sounders soccer team.
