After collecting scrap for two years and melding it into the homemade monstrosity you see above, Li Jingchun’s self-built plane is finally finished – at least on the outside.
As reported by the People's Daily, right now it’s missing a few crucial components; the interior being one, and an engine being another. Of course Jingchun also doesn’t have a pilots licence or the foggiest how his contraption could ever fly, but that hasn’t deterred the 58-year-old – it’s his dream to pilot a passenger plane.
Having already spent over £4,000 trying to get his DIY-plane off the ground, a dream is where it'll probably stay; at least I hope it does. It looks like a right death trap; I don’t want him flying that thing anywhere near me, unlike these other awesome Chinese DIY flying machines, of course. [People's Daily]
