flying lawnmower

Is this real? the caption says that some guy modified his lawnmower to take off and fly.It looks real to me, but I'm not sure if that is actually possible. What do you think?

Sort of. It's a RC model plane built to look like a lawnmower. The main body is a single wing, and you can see the propeller at the front.

Yeah, I remeber a similar clip from 1993... although this one is definitely a different one. AFAIR, the older one featured a take-off of a red lawnmower, not a green one... and the new clip doesn't look like VHS at all.
