The dusty desert of Lucin, Utah, isn’t for everyone. It’s lonely, windy and hot. But for Ivo Zdarsky, it’s home. The inventor, who in 1984 escaped Czechoslovakia in a homemade aircraft, lives in an airplane hangar about 25 miles from his nearest neighbor.
Bohemian Badass, 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.
