Ivo Zdarsky, who escaped Communist Czechoslovakia in an aircraft he built himself in 1984, is the only resident of a Utah ghost town so remote the nearest grocery store is 160 miles away.

The 51-year-old lives alone in an airplane hangar in the abandoned town in Utah surrounded by three runways so he can develop his designs for an experimental aircraft.

Mr Zdarsky, who manufactures plane propellers, has named his place Lucin International Airport although the only plane that lands in the town a 180 miles away from of Salt Lake City is his own.
