Flight of fancy

, February 26, 2014

Luo Jinsha operates his self-made aircraft during a test flight on the outskirts of Shanghai, on February 26. Luo, 28, a migrant worker living in Shanghai, spent around eight months and 40,000 yuan ($6,529) to build the plane to fulfil his dream to fly. Despite failing during the first test flight, Luo said he will not give up hope on improving his plane so as to eventually fly it successfully. The aircraft was able to move quickly on the ground but could not take to the air on second attempt. Reuters/Aly Song
