Overview

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.

Fantastic Paper Airplanes compiles reproductions of 34 aircraft, which range from a model of the Wright brothers biplane to an out-of-this-world flying saucer.
