Zhu Yue, who has dreamed of flying an airplane since childhood, spent two years and more than 2.6 million yuan (about 375,000 USD) building a plane himself.
Zhu didn't finish middle school, and before he got a job as a welder in a factory, he was a garlic and onion farmer.
Last year, 39-year-old Zhu Yue realized he would never be able to own and fly a real plane so, equipped with a toy model of an Airbus 320 and five fellow aircraft enthusiasts, Zhu began his project of building an aircraft. To begin funding the project, Zhu even sold his car.
