Redford’s “Out of Africa” plane on the auction block

You want to buy a plane? Would it help to know that it was flown by Robert Redford?

The 1929 DeHavilland Gipsy Moth biplane flown by Redford’s adventurer character Denys Finch Hatton in the 1985 Oscar-winning drama "Out of Africa" is going on the auction block in February.

The British auction house Bonhams will be selling the plane — which still works, and comes with a permit to fly and the original paint job and registration markings seen in the movie — at its Grand Palais auction in Paris, Feb. 6-7.

Bidding is expected to exceed 150,000 Euros — or $180,000.
