Granted, this story has nothing to do with either advertising or purported offers. But the subject matter of the contract, i.e. fighter planes, is certainly the same. This news report tells the story of a Chinese businessman who bid on, and won, a fighter plane as part of an eBay auction. His winning bid was approximately $25,000. Although the businessman is apparently claiming that the plane will be used merely to decorate his office, there is some question about whether the plane can be exported.
