Paul Allen buys Russian MiG 29 fighter jet


Paul Allen now owns a Russian MiG-29 fighter jet.

Allen's Flying Heritage Collection at Paine Field took possession of the fighter jet on March 9.

The FHC blog says they've been supporting the restoration of the jet for several years.

The main focus of the FHC is combat aircraft from World War II. Other planes on display include a Grumman F6F Hellcat, a Republic P-47D Thunderbird, and a Polikarpov U-2.

"As a kid I got fascinated by models of airplanes," says Allen on the site.

The MiG will be on display in Everett for only a short time.
