traderjoes : I am 52 now and I remember when I was maybe 12 years old, my parents brought us to the Empire State Building in NYC and when I was at the top, I took a brochure that the building gave out and I folded it into a kind of big paper airplane and when nobody was looking I threw it off the observation deck. I saw it fly out and really far and then start flying in circles and arcs and eventually lost sight of it as it flew behind other buildings. After we came out of the building and were walking back to where my father had parked the car, I found the paper airplane, pretty much flattened out on the side walk, but it still had the folds I had put in it. I couldn't believe I had found it.

xbox gamer256 : The only papar airplane that i know how to make is one of thous clasic paper airplanes😭😭😭
