An overenthusiastic seven-year-old London boy almost bought his very own real-life Harrier fighter jet on eBay for £69,999 ($113,515) last week.
The British-built Harrier jump jet was for sale on the site — but for a fixed price instead of an auction.
A youngster hit the “buy it now” button to purchase the restored fighter jet, causing his father to quickly apologize to the sellers and tell them his son was not able to buy the aircraft out of his pocket money.
“His dad rang up and profusely apologized to us, so it’s still for sale. We’ve put it on as an auction now so that won’t happen again,” said a spokeswoman for Jet Art Aviation, of Bradford, central England, which is selling the Harrier.
Turns out the attention generated by the boy’s bid has lead to a lot of interest in this jet.
“The auction has since received considerable interest with the bids rolling in,” Chris Wilson of Jet Art Aviation Ltd said in an email Wednesday.
