We came upon (what remains of) this chopper while driving in the city today, and thought we would take a few shots for those of you that haven’t seen it yet. The homemade helicopter sits conspicuously outside the Exhibition Park in Harare, probably its final resting place.
The designer of this helicopter, a Daniel Chingoma, had a dream to fly his chopper one day. Sadly, the dream never came true. The man went on to build another one, pictured on the Zimbojam site last year. We hear the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe wouldn’t let the new aircraft in the air either.
Still it’s interesting what a man armed with a dream can do.
