INDIANAPOLIS More than $1.8 million raised by selling the Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's airplane is going to the state police.
The 2001 Beechcraft Super King Air B200 twin-turbine aircraft was sold Jan. 30 to Florida-based American Aviation for about $134,000 more than its asking price. The business offers flight classes and airplane repairs.
The proceeds from the sale are going to the Indiana State Police.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence joked about putting the plane up for sale during his State of the State address last month. He drew laughter when he said, "If you know anyone looking for a great deal on a Beechcraft King Air 200, give me a call."
