CAMP HILL, Pa. (AP) — Lots of houses have a two-car garage. Dan Reeve's had a one-airplane basement.

Until, that is, the central Pennsylvania man knocked out a wall to get it out.

Reeve tells WGAL-TV he spent the last nine years building a two-seat airplane in the basement of his Cumberland County home. The plane arrived in pieces via mail but eventually it became way too big to get up the steps.

So Reeve dug a trench down to the foundation and took out a wall. Reeve pulled the plane out on Wednesday using a truck, a chain and some neighbors.

Reeve tells the station most of his neighbors had no idea what he was doing until the "Airplane Removal Wednesday" banner went up on his porch.
