  • Paper airplane - A letter from Scotland
    though initially disappointed at yet another site claiming to be The Best I was intrigued by the artist rendition on the home page and the neat and graceful lines it expressed And so with eager anticipation I clicked on the link and began building the best paper airplane in the world I was delighted to find each step in the construction fully annotated in colour photography and also that you had picked up on the one difficult part steps 17 to 18 and clarified the process A couple on minutes later and there was my plane looking identical to the pictures and ready to fly On reading your instructions on flying the plane I threw caution to the wind and launched the plane across the office floor I was at first a little disappointed as what looked to be the start of a promising dive was cut short by the ruthless intervention of one of my colleague s bulbous head On properly chastising him for his reckless disregard for my aiplanes safety I resigned myself to further testing at home the office being far too treacherous a place for innocent aiplanes to be flying After a leisurely dinner I raced upstairs to throw the plane from my bedroom window and how delighted I was when the plane produced a neat little loop in the air and then glider gracefully down in a long slow spiral resting neatly on the grass after 7 or 8 seconds My heart lifted I proceeded to bore annoy irritate cajole and eventually persuade my family to come out and see this wonderful toy Each was equally surprised at the planes remarkable gliding abilities as well as commenting on its uncanny tree finding capabilities All in all then I am delighted with your airplane and have

  • Piper J-3 Cub - The airplane that taught America to fly!
    notice that the ink has saturated the paper where there are solid colors You can set your printer on medium quality and try again This causes the printer to use less ink Wait for the paper dry before starting your project Model shown in simulated flight Top of next column Details of the finished model You will be proud to display this highly detailed easy to build paper model Interesting tidbits about this historic airplane A REAL Piper J 3 Cub Buying a real Piper Cub The model that s still considered the generic general aviation airplane by many non pilots still has an enormous attraction to pilots as well In fact it s so popular it has taken on classic status and assumed a price tag out of all proportion to its talents Today sharp J 3s start at around 20 000 and if you must have a show stopper expect to pay 30 000 or more Cub downs Messerschmitt Bf 109 During World War II some Piper Cubs were equipped with rockets One even was credited with downing a Messerschmitt Bf 109 that was chasing the Cub which could turn on a dime and the German couldn t In spite of wartime heroics the Cub will always be remembered as the airplane that gave wings to thousands of pilots all over the world Newfangled contraption A Cub brings a message to Major General Innes P Swift commander of the U S 1st Cavalry Brigade Apparently the old warrior could understand horses and even tanks in a pinch but what the hell he thought is the U S Army doing messing around with airplanes and pretty flimsy looking ones at that So to the pilot he growled You looked just like a damn grasshopper when you landed that thing

    other end at high velocity If you were trying to blow bubbles with a straw you would probably burst them because of the violent rush of air The cone shaped bubble blower reduces the velocity but not the volume of air moving through it When the air reaches the end of the cone it has reduced in speed and does not violently fill the bubble with turbulent air When you blow bubbles with the standard plastic ring your bubble solution must cling to the plastic surface and span the opening When this bubble solution runs out the bubble will separate from the ring or burst The size of the bubble is limited by the small amount of soap solution clinging to the ring When you blow bubbles with the absorbent paper cone you first submerge it into the bubble solution which absorbs a large quantity of the soap mixture This solution becomes a reservoir for blowing really large bubbles When you start blowing the bubble the solution is pulled out of the cone as needed by the growing bubble The size of it is limited only by your skill lung capacity and the quantity and quality of solution that is
