Wealthy Russian Tries to Buy B-52 Bomber at Moscow Air Show

Here's a story with interesting ITAR implications. Reuters has reported that during last week's Moscow Air Show (MAKS 2007) a wealthy Russian tried to buy a B-52 bomber from he U.S. delegation. According the report:

The unidentified Russian, wearing sunglasses and surrounded by bodyguards, approached the U.S. delegation and asked to buy the bomber . . . .

An astounded member of the U.S. delegation said the bomber was not for sale but that it would cost at least $500 million if it were to be sold on the spot.

"That [$500 million] is no problem. It is such a cool machine," the Russian was quoted as saying . . . . The bomber was not sold.
