World's Largest Paper Airplane

What? Why wasn't I informed that the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona, created a giant 45-foot paper airplane ... and flew it!

The giant paper airplane, named "Arturo's Desert Eagle," was based on the paper airplane designed by 12-year-old Aturo Valdenegro, who won the museum's paper airplane distance contest earlier this year.

It did not fly. It fell for six seconds at 98 mph then slammed into the ground.

The best part about paper airplanes is watching them fly and seeing them crash. This video deftly avoids either.

Funny, with 40 people filming it, not one got an actual shot of it "soaring above the desert."

No, it certainly did not "fly". This project was nothing more than a colossal waste of time, energy and resources. It wasn't, in my humble opinion, worthy of a mention on Neatorama but I guess it was a slow news day...
