A spokesman for Paddock's family at the home, 4801 N Byron Place, said Paddock had been constructing the Benson Gyrocopter craft for several weeks as a hobby. The spokesman said Tuesday's fatal flight was one of the first, if not the first, that Paddock had made in the ill-fated plane, The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported the accident occurred at 6:05 p.m. after the one-man craft had made a circle over the airport."
