Michael Lotito was born in Grenoble, France, in 1950. He died in 2007.

He is famous for eating a light aircraft. Yes, that’s right. A light aircraft!

Between 1978 and 1980, he ate a Cessna 155.

He had been “eating stuff” and publicly performing from the age of 16 and in his time he had eaten (among other things), 18 bicycles, 15 shopping carts, 7 televisions, 6 chandeliers, 2 beds, a pair of skis, a coffin, and 400m of steel chain.

And the Cessna 155.

His stage name; Monsieur Mange Tout – Mr Eat Everything.

How did he do it?

Bit by bit.

If you’ve “got too much on your plate” or your goals are the equivalent of eating a light aircraft… well, you get the idea.
