A Boeing 747-400 aircraft, described as Japan's 'Air Force One', has gone on sale.

The 1991 plane was retired from service in March.

It has carried the Japanese emperor and several prime ministers around the world over 26 years.

Described as "one of the lowest time Boeing 747-400's in the world", its description says it has "been maintained to the highest possible standard".

"This looks like a factory new aircraft", the listing on Controller.com adds.
