NEW YORK (OCN) — “His model airplane hobby really took off” says proud parent, Janet Wiseman.
Wiseman’s son, Matthew, loved building model airplanes with his father since he was five (5) years old and now at the age of sixteen (16), won US$25,000.00 in a model airplane building contest.
Matthew lost his father, Anthony Wiseman at the age of nine (9), but never lost his love for building model planes. With the prize money he won, he plans to use it to go to college which he hopes will land him a job with Boeing or Lockheed Martin in the future.
Is Wesieman alone? No, as Fabian Gaffner (a 20-year-old mechanical engineering student at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ)) is working on an airplane that he hopes can fly backwards as well as forwards.
