Dan Reeves and his airplane are getting close to the wild blue yonder.

Reeves got his pilot’s license a year ago, and Wednesday he hauled the plane he has been building in his Lower Allen Township basement for the past nine years through a hole in his wall and into the light of day.

"Success," he told the Patriot News, raising his arms, after he and a group of friends pulled the plane up a ramp, onto the sidewalk, then onto a trailer for its trip to Capital City Airport, where he will put on the final touches.
