Many of us see a plane and think they’re cool. It may influence us to get a pilot’s license or maybe purchase a few Micro Machines and even assembled a design aircraft. Michael Kelly saw his very first Douglas DC-3 aircraft at the Shannon Airport in Ireland when he was just a little young boy and ended up being extremely enthusiastic design planes.
It left such an impression on him that he started collecting design the most accurate and rarest designs he might discover. Made to scale, with in-depth, precise markings, these aircrafts were almost like the genuine thing (apart from the ability to fly).
Today his collection stands at over 5,000 which he holds a Guinness World Record for, and he states he still hasn’t lost his boylike wonder about them. In fact, regardless of his age now, he might look at the sky and tell you what airplane was flying above him.
