As an update to our story last week on the Beijing man who bought a MiG-21 fighter jet on ebay... he now wants a refund. Why? They can't ship to China. Surprise, surprise....

According to Reuters:
Zhang Cheng, a Beijing businessman, bid $24,730 and paid a $2,000 deposit for the former Czech air force plane on Chinese-based eBay, Xinhua news agency said.

But legal experts informed Zhang that the MiG-21, located in Idaho in the United States, was "almost impossible to ship back," Xinhua said, quoting the Beijing Times.

Moreover, the seller had clearly confined the destination of the plane to the United States and Canada, Xinhua quoted a member of eBay's public relations staff as saying. (Reuters)
