Every person has a dream that they want to make a reality when they retire, but this guy took it to a whole another level.

Art Nalls was a Marine Corps fighter jet test pilot but then retired and went into real estate but craved to be back in fighter jets. He started going to air shows and flying smaller planes but what he really wanted a Harrier. After the British Navy decommissioned their fleet, Art put feelers out to buy one and the rest is history.

To my knowledge, this is the only example of a civilian owning and flying a Harrier jet.
