If you fail at something in life, that is not the end of the journey. Mithilesh Prasad from Bihar’s Chhapra village is demonstrating the same. Mithilesh, a pipe fitter hailing from Simari village in Baniyapur, left everyone gushing when he modified a TATA Nano to look like a helicopter. Although the helicopter-car cannot fly, it has everything to garner the attention of netizens who have been praising Mithilesh for his skills.
The on-road helicopter, which took Mithilesh and his brother a gruelling 7 months to complete, has features like the rotor blade, tail boom and tail rotor. The interiors of the “helicopter car” have also been customised by Mithilesh and draws inspiration from a helicopter. The rotors and side panels have attached colourful LED lights to add aesthetics.

Nothing else makes a 12th class pass out, Mithilesh, happier than driving his “helicopter car” on the road even if he cannot fly one.
“I always dreamed of becoming a pilot, but owing to financial restrictions, it wasn’t possible, so I decided to buy a car and gave it a helicopter look,” Mitliseh explains when asked to comment on his creative invention.
Chinese Replica of Airbus-A320
If Mithilesh’s creation is not enough to motivate your wits, then meet Zhu Yue, a farmer based in China who decided to construct his own airplane because he couldn’t afford one. Zhu Yue and his friends in 2018 built a full-size replica of an Airbus A320 jet plane, spending nearly three million yuan on the project.
The plane’s latest additions are a self-made cockpit, fitted with replica flight instruments, and stairs to get aboard. The jet, interestingly, attracts tourists from across the length and breadth of the globe.
