Who Wants to Buy an A-12 Canopy?

Check out this collection of images of the A-12 Avenger II canopy that ended up for sale on eBay. You know, the McDonnell Douglas-designed A-12 was the Navy's effort to build a carrier-launched stealth bomber that would replace the sea service's A-6 Intruders and A-7 Corsairs. The project was cancelled in the early 1990s due to the post-Cold War draw-down. Rather than field a brand new generation of attack jet, the Navy opted to retire its A-7s, A-6s and F-14 Tomcat air superiority fighters and replace them with a mix of F/A-18 Hornets and their updated cousin, the souped-up F/A-19E/F Super Hornet. The conditions of the cancellation led to a very long lawsuit on Boeing's behalf.

Anyway, the canopy is still up for sale on and it's going for about $620,000.
