Who Has the World's Biggest Private Jet Fighter Collection?


The world's biggest private jet fighter collection numbers 110, and belongs to French winemaker Michel Pont, of Savigny-Les-Beaune, in the Burgundy region. His hobby started in 1985, and includes Russian MiGs, British Jaguars and French Mirages. He buys them from governments although they cannot be flown over French airspace. Michel's 40-acre vineyard and 14th century castle not only holds his amazing jet-fighter and helicopter collection, it also houses 500 motorbikes of a range of brands, from Norton to Terrot, with models going back from 1902 (with some of them having belonged to famous people from around the world). Not only that, he's also collected 24 Abarth Fiat racing cars, which he keeps in his barn loft.
