The recently acquired foreign-made Sukhoi Su-27 is a jet that has two-seat. The Sukhoi Su-27 is known for its murky history. It is also believed to have spent its time for the last decade at Area 51.
Sukhoi Su-27 Acquired from Ukraine
According to The Drive, the recently acquired jet, Sukhoi Su-27, was purchased on the open market from Ukraine and was then put up for sale in the United States. After acquiring the Sukhoi Su-27, the Federal Aviation Administration and USAF registered the jet as N121SU.
The Sukhoi Su-27 was the first jet that became available to civilians in the United States which drew a lot of attention and interest from the Americans. For an aircraft that’s under only $5 million, it is what you can call such a steal.
