By WANG QIAN | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-06-30 00:00

Building trains every day, Guo Wuchun in his 50s from Zhuzhou, Hunan province, was not satisfied. He wanted more. He wanted to reach for the sky. His dream was to build and fly a helicopter that he made. It finally came true after five years of research and development.

Video footage showing Guo's test flight in his coaxial helicopter has gone viral on Sina Weibo. It had been viewed more than 38 million times as of Monday. Many netizens call it an inspiring story that shows everything is possible as long as you dare to follow your dream and never give up.

"When I was a boy, I had dreamed of building a plane, but most people thought that it was an unobtainable dream for me, a middle school graduate," Guo says.
