The world’s largest flying paper airplane is 45 feet long

At the Pima Air & Space Museum, a team of engineers designed and built a 45 foot long paper airplane that flew in the Arizona desert, which makes it the world’s largest all-paper flying airplane. One of the engineers is 12 year old Arturo who won the Great Paper Airplane Fly-Off on January 14, 2012, and he played a key role in building the gigantic paper airplane.

The paper plane also had a wingspan of 24 feet and flew at a top speed of 98 mph. The paper plane was carried into the air by a helicopter, and then dropped on it’s own and traveled unassisted for almost a mile. I would definitely say this is every boy’s dream at some point.
