Nine-year-old Abeer Magoo has been presented a unique opportunity to celebrate his 10th birthday at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. The invite was sent by the Airport CEO for making a model of the airport.

The young boy made a replica of Delhi airport’s terminal 1. He used Google map image and developed a replica of the airport with exactly the same models of aircraft which are available at the airport. He also developed a chart where he has written the flight numbers, their departure and arrival timings.

Magoo said in an interview with ANI, “I am very excited about my birthday. It is going to be the best birthday. I will not leave any corner of Delhi airport unseen.”

The nine-year-old also shed light on how he developed his art form. “I was once travelling to Mumbai with my parents on a flight. It was then when I saw a pilot going inside the cabin. Also, I saw the cockpit from very close. I enjoyed that vision a lot and I was amazed at all the lights there. I started collecting miniatures of planes from then onwards.”

Magoo has great ambitions of becoming a pilot in the future.

“I worked for 21 hours, taking breaks in between, to create this. I have models of airbuses and Boeing aircraft,” he said.

Anurag Magoo, who travels a lot for business purposes, said his son has more than 150 aircraft in his collection. He also added that Abeer is passionate about planes and never demands anything but them.

Meanwhile, Abeer’s mother Shweta Magoo said, “I am so proud of my son. All his teachers in school are calling me to congratulate. It is very exciting for me that Delhi airport has called us to celebrate his birthday. They were amazed to see such striking details in his creation.”
