A Chinese farmer built his own model of an aeroplane after he realised he would never be able to fly an aircraft. Zhu Yue managed to build the lifesize replica of an Airbus A320 – with a little help from his friends – over two years. The plane is currently on the verge of being completed and sits on a pavement in the Liaoning city.
Zhu, who didn’t finish middle school, started out farming onions and garlic, before becoming a welder in a factory. With some help from five other aircraft enthusiasts, he managed to create the huge replica. However, he doesn’t have any plans to try and make it airworthy. Instead, Zhu says he has decided to turn it into a diner!
