Iraqi Airlines to Auction Saddam Hussein's 747

Iraqi Airways has declared that it will hold a public auction to sell two Boeing 747 planes that are currently stationed at Tozeur-Nefta Airport in Tunisia.

Two planes with Pratt and Whitney engines, both manufactured in 1982, have been parked at the airport since 1991.

It is known that both airplanes were relocated before the Gulf War for the purpose of keeping them safe.

The YI-AGP is a Boeing 747-200, and the YI-ALM is a 747-SP. The latter was famously utilized as the official government jet of Saddam Hussein.

The auction is scheduled for Wednesday, August 16th, at the airport.

Each aircraft is valued at an estimated amount of $494,000.
