Ten most expensive aircraft in production (2014)

rl2320.1L

The price for a modern aircraft is astonishing. Today there are at least nine types that cost more than $200 million dollars for a single aeroplane.  If the Northrop B-2  Spirit were still in production it would top this list at a horrendous $750 million per aircraft.

 

These are prices per single aircraft based on the best available figures, I’m happy to adjust any of these if you have better (and verifiable) data.

10. Airbus A400M Atlas

$198 million
