A Kenyan man has used the internet and some books on engineering to build his own aircraft.

Gabriel Nderitu has dreamt of flying since he was a child and has spent a huge amount of money building the plane in his front yard.

But his dream may be grounded as the authorities say it is not airworthy.

Kevin Mwachiro reports.
