Wonder if it was Jeremy Clarkson - he's got a jet in his front garden hasn't he? Lightning IIRC.

Quote:
His known passion for single- or two-passenger high-velocity transport led to his brief acquisition of an English Electric Lightning F.1A jet fighter, which was installed in the front garden of his country home. The Lightning was subsequently removed on the orders of the local council, which "wouldn't believe my claim that it was a leaf blower", according to Clarkson on a Tiscali Motoring webchat. In fact, the whole affair was a setup for the programme Speed, and English Electric Lightning XM172 is now back with the Farnborough preservation group.

Loads of stuff like this ends up on the US ebay.

A chap at work knows some one in oxfordshire area who bought a spitfire from australia using ebay. It turned up, in a container and after inspecting it he found customs failed to notice the eight operational machine guns mounted in the wings. Apparantly they had assumed they were decomissioned.
