Just Try Building One Of These–45 FOOT Paper Airplane? (VIDEO)
It even looks like the ones we used to fold out of our report cards, flyers, or just plain notebook paper.
Except for one little difference–this plane is 45 feet long, weighs 800 pounds, and actually flew over the Arizona desert! The plane was the creation of the PIMA Aerospace Museum in Tuscon AZ held a paper airplane competition for children, and they took the winning entry and made it just a little bigger. The competition was held to encourage children to get a renewed interest in aviation and related fields.
The winning entry was from 12 year old Arturo Valderamo, and the museum-using what is called Falconboard paper-faithfully re-created a 45 foot replica of Arturo’s work. Did it fly? And now far? See for yourself!
