Pa. man knocks out wall, pulls plane from basement

(05-26) 07:30 PDT Camp Hill, Pa. (AP) --

Lots of houses have a two-car garage. Dan Reeves' had a one-airplane basement.

Until, that is, the central Pennsylvania man knocked out a wall to get it out.

Reeves spent the past nine years building a two-seat airplane in the basement of his Cumberland County home. The plane arrived in pieces via mail but eventually it became way too big to get up the steps.

So Reeves dug a trench down to the foundation and took out a wall. Reeves pulled the plane out Wednesday using a truck, a chain and some neighbors.

Onlookers were drawn to the spectacle by the "Airplane Removal Wednesday" put up on Reeves' porch.

Reeves tells The Patriot-News of Harrisburg he spent $40,000 on the plane and about $5,000 on the excavation.


WHY would you build a plane in your basement with no way to get it out??



It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.
