The Spirit of St. Louis. The P-51 Mustang. The Fokker Dr.I riplane, once famously painted red by Baron Manfred von Richthofen. These planes are just a few of the milestones of flight-now re-created as replica models by master paper airplane engineers Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers, authors of The World Record Paper Airplane Book, Kids' Paper Airplane Book, and Pocket Flyers Paper Airplane Book, together with a soaring 1.6 million copies in print.
Combining the passion for aviation and love for making paper airplanes, the Aviation Legends Paper Airplane Book offers easy-to-make, easy-to-fly, accurate models of 12 historically important planes. There are at least two full-color copies of each plane-one for flying, one for show-plus fold-up stands to display them. The book is like a greatest hits of powered aviation: The Wright Flyer. The 1935 DC-3 Douglas Sleeper Transport, which revolutionized commercial travel. The Rutan/Yeager Voyager, the only aircraft to have flown around the world without refueling. Complete with time lines, history, trivia, stats, and specs, it's the glory of aviation, all ready to make and fly.
