If you’ve been scanning the skies for your next private plane, you need look no further: A very special jumbo jet has just popped up on our radar, and can be yours for a cool $28 million.

The Boeing 747-400, which, until recently, served as Japan’s version of Air Force One is now available for purchase, according to a listing on the aviation trade publication Controller.

Built in 1991, the GE CF6 powered jumbo jet has chauffeured 14 Japanese prime ministers, the country’s emperor, delegates and various VIPs, for nearly three decades. Aside from its prestigious past, the plane is in near-pristine condition. According to the listing, the 28-year-old aircraft has tallied 13,569 landings and accrued just 16,332 hours of flight time—and most of those hours were probably short training flights taken by the crews of the Japanese Air Force.
