    Veteran wants to take to the sky in his own hand-built plane

    Veteran wants to take to the sky in his own hand-built plane

    For many people, the thought of flying is scary enough.

    But a San Antonio veteran wants to take his flying to whole new heights, by building his own airplane.

    If a guy tells you he's working on a major project in his garage, you might think it's a classic car.

    But that's not the case with Rick Vinas. This army veteran is building an airplane from scratch.

    "Of course there's a drawing on the back, back there on the wall that shows you what it's going to look like when it's done,” Vinas said.

    Luckily, he's got some help

    "Jim and Jim and Gene and Dave as well,” he said.

    Buddies from a local experimental aircraft organization and veterans themselves.

    "Everyone of these guys has more hours in airplanes and more time building and more ideas of how it works, every one of them than I do, so I really on them," he said.

    So what would make this former U.S. army tanker reach for the skies?

    "I’ve just been airplane nut, like all these guys, you know, you’ve got to be sort of an aviation nut to want to build your own airplane," he said.

    When the plane is ready to take off, it'll look something like this, Charlie Brame's built-from-scratch aircraft.

    The result of blood, sweat, tears…and $70,000.

    "It has your little amenities and all the things you take with you,” he said. “It's wired in so you can hear the things you want to hear and do the things you want to do. That’s why you build your own airplane."

    It’s taken six years to get this far, but the finish line is in site: the engine should be put in place within a year.
