Brad Pitt buys WWII Spitfire airplane for $3.3 million
What’s that in the sky? It may just be Brad Pitt after the leading man reportedly bagged himself a World War II-era Spitfire plane.
The 49-year-old actor was so inspired by his latest movie, World War II flick “Fury,” that he purchased one of the fighter planes used by the Royal Air Force in battle, the Irish Examiner reported. And they don’t come cheap: Pitt supposedly paid $3.3 million for the aircraft.
“Brad, who has done everything from sleep in trenches to learn to drive a tank for the film, has now invested in one of the iconic machines,” a source told The Sun.
The star will allegedly take flying lessons in Oxford at the Boultbee Flying Academy. Maybe he can use his new wings to get to that giant heart-shaped island Angelina Jolie supposedly bought him.
