View All Available Formats & Editions


Fantasy fliers, reproductions of real planes, experimental models, and competition craft: these marvelous paper airplanes, shown in full color, will set the imagination soaring. Every aviation enthusiast will find more than a few favorites among these 34 aircraft, which range from a modified version of the Wright brothers’ biplane to an out-of-this-world flying saucer. The “Speedy” design is a cross between the French Mirage jet and a bat, and true to its name, is a fast and cunning model. The pterodactyl takes inspiration from the prehistoric flying reptile and is simple to make. Or try a facsimile of the F-16 Fighter, Tupolev, Catapult Defense Craft, Matchstick Rocket, Starship, or Sailplane. General instructions on tools and techniques, plus detailed folding plans for each one, will help you construct them all.
