Overview

These paper jets look and fly just like the real thing! Follow the easy construction steps shown here, do a few test flights, and based on the results, adjust the glider for straight and level flight at its best speed. Once it's fine-tuned, let it soar! Recreate high-speed jets such as the Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star; it brought the world speed record to the United States in 1947 and it boasted a slender fuselage with thin, tapered wings. Or construct the Havilland DH-106 Comet, designed for transport; the Airbus A310, with only two engines; and the beautiful Concorde SST. Plus: get ideas for displaying the gliders when they're "on the ground." Your imagination and creativity will take flight along with the airplanes.
