The Flying Farmer
For much of his life, Bin Xu was one of 300 million farmers who made up the agricultural industry in China. But Xu always dreamt of flying high in the sky. His dream felt like a distant reality, until Xu decided to take matters into his own hands.

Today, he makes his living building unusual aircrafts for flying enthusiasts throughout China, spending his spare time soaring the sky.
