An offer of more than £65,000 from Aberdeenshire for a Harrier jump jet auctioned on eBay has fallen flat.
The supposed winning Harrier bid failed to materialise
The decommissioned veteran of the Falklands conflict was being sold on the internet site by a business in England.
The apparent winning offer for the engineless former Royal Navy plane was made from Huntly.
However, the sellers said the offer was never confirmed and new offers were being made for the plane.
It was put up for sale by Keltruck in West Bromwich and management were initially delighted with the offer earlier this month.
Marketing director Chris Kelly said: "Its final price was £65,512.34 and I sent an invoice to the bidder. The guy never responded."
He said a report about non-payment would be made to eBay and more offers were now being considered.
