Travel Memorabilia: Buy Chairman Mao's Plane
Before John Travolta snatches it up, there's a pretty bad-ass piece of aviation memorabilia floating around on the open market. The British-made Trident plane flew China's communist leader, Mao Zedong, around his great red country before he died in 1976.
The Trident, which resided in a Chinese aviation museum and now sits in a Zhuhai shopping mall, is now up for sale. The mall's owners decided to sell the plane to make room for additional parking, its managers say.
No word on how much this giant communist toy costs, but in theory, shouldn't they just let every citizen take a turn?
