Tour of Alan Shipp's Jodel aircraft

Alan Shipp single-handedly built a four-seat plane from scratch in his garage, which has recently been awarded a top prize at an international rally in France.

The retired fire-fighter from Kirk Ella, near Hull, sourced and assembled all of the pieces by following complicated French plans. It was a mammoth DIY project that took him 11 years and cost around £25,000 to build.
