Kenyan IT Guy Builds an Airplane from Scratch

Kenyan IT professional Gabriel Nderitu has built an airplane from scratch using a 4,000 RPM Toyota NZE engine, aluminum-sheeted wings, and a 74-inch wooden propeller. All told, the project has cost Nderitu about $5,500.

The aircraft isn’t yet 100% flight-ready, but Nderitu hopes to take it for a spin next week — assuming the Kenyan authorities let him fly it. Either way (although the scenario in which he flies it is admittedly more awesome), this is quite an impressive feat.
