"World's only privately owned Phantom CAPABLE of flight".

Not the only civil Phantom...after all the Collings Foundation has been flying a F-4 for years.  I'm sure some can...and will..quibble with their Phantom, owned by a foundation as "privately owned", but it isn't military or government owned.

It isn't capable of flight though, is it! It claims 85% complete, yet the pictures show big holes where things are missing - every panel is held on by one or two screws. Why would you paint it when you are that far out from flight? They want $4m for it, and the engines still need to be overhauled...

I think if you knocked a zero off you might be somewhere near.

Surely anything is 'capable of flight' - thus the phrase is meaningless. One could make a barn door fly given enough power and money!
