American billionaire Jared Isaacman shared his impressions of the recently acquired MiG-29 UB fighter.

The Drive portal found out who bought the MiG-29UB fighter from the collection of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who died in 2018. The new owner of the plane was a young "business phenomenon" Jared Isaacman. He is known as the Creator of Draken International, which has one of the world's largest fleets of used combat jet aircraft. Moreover, the billionaire himself is an experienced pilot.

In 2019, Jared Isaacman sold his stake in Draken International for tens of millions of dollars. Apparently, this money, as the Drive jokes, the businessman spent on the purchase of the plane. According to the portal, this fighter is in perfect condition and is "the most beautiful MiG-29 In the world".

Jared Isaacman explained that he purchased it for personal pleasure and plans to perform with it at an air show so that people can appreciate "the characteristics of this unique bird." According to him, the MiG-29 gives an incredible feeling. When you take off on it, it seems that it is "a real spaceship".

"This is definitely the most impressive plane I've ever flown," concludes Jared Isaacman.
