NEW YORK -- Japan's equivalent of Air Force One, retired from service in March, is now available for purchase on an aviation website for a grand bargain of $28 million.

A 1991 Boeing 747-400 jet has been listed on Controller.com by U.S.-based CSDS Aircraft Sales & Leasing, with pictures of the exterior and meeting rooms in the specialized plane. "Aircraft has been maintained to the highest possible standard. Shows like new," the website writes as its selling point.
