- Social media users were in awe of a village man who built an entire plane from scratch
- However, the reason behind his creation is even more impressive than the aircraft itself
- According to a neighbour, the man built the plane to show kids who could not visit an airport how they look
A woman, Temoso Matilda, took to the #ImStaying Facebook group on Sunday to share the inspiring story of a creative man living in her village.
According to Matilda's post, the man built an entire airplane from scratch because he wanted to show the village kids who could not travel to an airport how they look up close.
Her post read:
"A Guy from our village just built an airplane from scratch till now to show our kids who cant go to the airport how a plane looks like. Bolobedu is blessed to have such talent."
Bolobedu Live reported the man behind the airplane model is Jerry Raolane. According to the publication, he wanted to give back to the community.
Social media users were in awe of the man's talent and the reason he built the plane in the first place.
Dalene Devy commented:
"Maybe somebody can sponsor him into either aeronautical design or to become a pilot."
Busisiwe Masondo added:
"Wow that's so wonderful."
