Indian Boy Sets Guinness Record For Identifying Most Plane Tails
Siddhant Gumber, the 12-year-old, identified 39 aeroplane tails in 60 seconds.
UAE based Siddhant Gumber, a 12-year-old Indian origin boy, recently set the record for identifying most aeroplane tails in a minute. Gumber, who is homeschooled, recognized 39 aeroplane tails, taking about 1.5 seconds for each.
According to Gulf News, this isn’t his first record. Earlier, he got recognised for identifying top 100 tallest buildings in the world. In a statement to Gulf News, Gumber said, “I have been a Lego buff since I was a toddler, and my father and I spent a lot of time creating a variety of models — rockets, aeroplanes, buildings and vehicles. I was able to recognise a lot of the aeroplane tails, and my mother helped me compile them in PowerPoint slides so I could identify them (very quickly).”
Gumber can now easily recognise 300 aeroplane tails.
“He has an exceptional picture memory and usually never forgets an image once he has seen it. He does have a variety of interests and likes to know about things into detail, just like aeroplanes. Although he loves country flags, we focused on aeroplane tails for the Guinness record because they too are unique,” adds his mother, Monisha Gumber.
Siddhant has also been recognised by the India Book of World Records in the past.
