Jet 4 Sale

The Westwind II is online at eBay and bids are not yet even approaching the 2-point-5 million mark. Is it a good idea or a bad idea to sell something like this right around the Christmas season? And couldn't they have done a better job in their written language to describe the thing and pump it up?

Looking at the pictures, I can see why Governor Murkowski might have found it uncomfortable and a bit small. In fact, I flew to Hooper Bay in August on a state DPS plane (the King Air, I believe) and the Westwind II doesn't look much different - same plush seats, just a few more of them but still not a lot of leg room or head room.
