Man takes flight in small plane he built himself

A labour of love finally took off for this man.

After apparently spending six years creating his own aircraft, the builder finally got the chance to take it for a spin.

Footage shows the tiny aircraft being prepped for flight, with one person giving the propellers a spin by hand to get them going.

The plane then taxis down the runway before taking off, cruising over the aerodrome, and finally landing safely.

See what happens in the video above.
