What to buy if you have billions?
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - March 18, 2011 (WPVI) -- What to buy if you're a Microsoft billionaire?
How about your own MiG jet fighter?
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has added a restored s Russian-made MiG-29 to his collection of vintage airplanes.
That MiG was the Soviet answer to the U.S. F-15 and F-16.
The Herald newspaper reports one of Allen's companies closed on the purchase of the MiG last week.
It's currently on display at Allen's aviation museum at Paine Field in Everett, Washington.
Allen founded Microsoft with his high school friend Bill Gates in 1975.
