The Remains Of The Homemade Helicopter

advertisement

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.

  1. He has moved into politics, he has posters in several public restrooms around the city. What a place to launch a party!

  2. Give the man money….instead of Munya, 300k should go to this guy for having a dream and pursuing it. I would invest in his R&D if i had cash.

  3. Nyasha, you’d be wasting your money! Only way he’d get a chopper in the air is if you bought him one.

    1. The first person to invent a car went thru stages Dude…..I think we should had supported such innovations , we really these kind of people for Africa to develop ……i hates his dreams were shuttered

  4. Ahhh.. this one is good for greenwood park – the kids won’t tell a home made chopper from the real thing, et least..

  5. A prophet is never received in his own area….. he better go do it in China and we will flock to buy the Chinese made (but Zimbabwean Engineered)
