Amazing how Young Igbo Man From Enugu Builds ‘Aeroplane’, Flies It in Viral Video As He Begs for Govt Support
A 21-year-old Nigerian man, Ezugwu Miracle Onyedikachi, has said that if anyone ever told him he would one day
build something that would fly, he would never have believed it. An indigene of Enugu state, Onyedikachi said that
he built the small aeroplane using trash as materials. Speaking with BBC News Pidgin, the innovator added that he
woke up one day and just wanted to build something new.
“Nothing is impossible”, The young man said despite the fact that people think building an aeroplane is hard, he
considers it an easy task. According to him, before setting out to work on the gadget, he went online to make
findings on the materials needed.
The man said the only thing he had to buy was the remote control, adding that the whole building process took
him a month. Onyedikachi also disclosed that he had some teething issues when he started as everything he built
was always crash-landing before he fixed the bug.
However, for the aeroplane’s body, he used a Styrofoam sheet picked from the street. He said that if only the government
supports him, he could build one that airlifts passengers.
