ZARANJ (PAN): Five remote-controlled aircraft made by an Afghan on Wednesday made their test flight at the civil airport in southwestern Nimroz province.
“I have been working on making remote-controlled aircraft over the past six years. The planes are different from each other in weight and size,” Zmarai Hilali, the innovator who heads the provincial water and energy department, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
"One aircraft is 2.5 metres long and can fly at a speed of 70 kilometres per hour at a 7,000 metres altitude and can carry 15 kilograms of weight," said Hilali, who used cork, wood and fabrics for making the plane.
