Giant Paper Airplane Soars

A 45-foot paper airplane made out of pizza-box-like material flew across the desert sky.

The basis of the design was a 12-year-old kid’s entry in the Pima Air & Space Museum’s Paper Airplane Fly-Off in Tuscon, Airzona. The man who developed the design into a monstrously big masterpiece also, no big deal, helped design the B-2 stealth bomber.

Read more about it here in the L.A. Times. Regarding the lucky 12-year-old: ” … before the Great Paper Airplane Project he thought that he might pursue a career in engineering, but after … seeing his plane realized in giant size, he now knows he’s going to be an engineer when he grows up.”
