Man builds airplane on apartment roof

Seven years ago pilot Amol Yadav built a six-seater aircraft on the roof of his  building in Mumbai. The building didn't have an elevator, so factory lathes, compressors, welding machines, and an imported 180kg (396lb) engine had to be carried five stories up a narrow stairwell to the roof. Mr Yadav and his  crew worked under a tarp shed on the roof which is less than half the size of a tennis court.
The plane was dismantled to display at a Make In India show but has not yet been flown because India's airline regulator has been stalling for the last six years over registering the rooftop plane, and certifying it as airworthy.
