US man knocks out wall, pulls plane from basement

Reeves spent the past nine years building a two-seat airplane in the basement of his Cumberland County home. The plane arrived in pieces via mail but eventually it became way too big to get up the steps.So Reeves dug a trench down to the foundation and took out a wall. Reeves pulled the plane out yesterday using a truck, a chain and some neighbours.
Onlookers were drawn to the spectacle by the "Airplane Removal yesterday" put up on Reeves' porch.

Reeves tells The Patriot-News of Harrisburg he spent USD 40,000 on the plane and about USD 5,000 on the excavation
