Builds Plane in Parlor While Neighbors Wonder at Noise (Aug, 1929)
That’s some pretty extreme DIY.
Builds Plane in Parlor While Neighbors Wonder at Noise
THE mystery of all the pounding and sawing neighbors heard in the home of Peter Lepicer, of Brooklyn, N. Y., was solved when he moved a two-seated monoplane which he built in his parlor. Workmen were required to tear part of the building away in order to get the plane out of the house.
For several months residents in the neighborhood were at loss to explain the noises resounding from Mr. Lepicer’s home. Questioning him brought no response other than a wise nod and, “Wait and see.” They waited impatiently while all sorts of queer ideas brewed as to what he was doing. When they found out they were astounded.
The plane was complete with the exception of the propeller, wings and landing gear, which he connected when he had extracted the ship from his parlor.
