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!
