An Arizona aircraft museum reckons it has taken the record for the launch of the biggest ever paper plane: a 45ft (13.7m) long monster which glided to Earth last week from a height of 2,703ft (824m).Pima Air & Space Museum's hefty 800lb (363kg) Arturo's Desert Eagle needed a helicopter to haul its 24ft (7.3m) wingspan off the ground, but video of the release indicates it really did fly at up to 98mph (158km/h), even if footage of what we imagine was a lively landing isn't yet available.
It’s not every day that a giant paper airplane is released high over the Arizona desert. In fact, it’s never been done. But that’s exactly what the Pima Air & Space Museum did on March 21, 2012. The video to the right is our first glimpse into the dramatic, historic flight. More videos to come as we gather footage.A couple months ago, hundreds of kids came to the museum to show us what paper airplane flying was all about. And now, inspired by their enthusiasm, we built a 45-foot paper airplane (quite possibly the largest ever constructed) and flew it.
Or is there another reason why they haven't videod the "flight".
It's not easy, tracing paper.
Are you sure that the plane was Legal?

I think they stuck to the letter of the law when it came to size, so it was probably fly paper.
Think it had a change of heart and became sandpaper instead
Emery dog has its day...
Here, try this foolscap for size!
That's what it gets for being abrasive.

I don't know if you can handle this but we've come full circle; it's time to make the rough places plain.
You're dishing it out just as much as anyone. Playing the victim is just plane wrong.
we should stop this chit before we get into strife for derailing the thread
That would be nothing to sneeze at but it's a tissue of lies.
That' snot what I was thinking, but then again, I know booger all.

I glide? Like I could even begin to script something like that
I think on this we are of a concorde
You certainly know how to propel a thought, even when it's a draft idea. You're diving me up the wall!
That's the ticket!
so long as you don't crash and burn, I'd bank you'll be back in the loop in no time
