John Garric has been building a plane one for almost six years.
But this isn't just any ordinary plane, its a World War II British fighter plane.
And according to Garric, it's the only one in the entire world.
Garric spends several hours a day, seven days a week at the Mid Valley Airport working on the plane.
He says it takes a lot of time because every part needs to fit just right.
So where does one find the pieces to re build a plane from the late 1930's?
Well, Garric uses parts from older models. It also helps to help alleviate the costs.
He says its all for his passion.
Garric says the plane should be ready to fly by the end of the year. After that, he's sure to find another one.
