The Secret Baggage Handler reveals the truth about what really happens to your suitcase Arizona schoolboy’s dream comes true as giant paper plane flies at 4000 feet over desert.Lucky Arturo Valdenegro, from Tucson, Arizona, USA became the envy of schoolboys and girls the world over recently when he won a competition to build a giant paper aeroplane. Twelve year-old Arturo triumphed in a local newspaper competition by flying his own (standard-sized) plane further than his classmates. His reward was being on the project team who built a real version of the plane that he had designed. As an added prize, the plane was even named after him.Arturo’s Desert Eagle was the product of a team of crack scientists, engineers and designers – and Arturo himself. The plane, resembling the classic aircraft Concorde, became a record-breaker, being the world’s biggest plane made out of paper. It measured a whopping 45 feet in length and boasted a 24-foot wing span. Arturo’s 800-pound baby took to the skies with a little help from a helicopter, which towed it 4000 feet into the sky above the Arizona desert before letting it go.For six wondrous seconds, the Eagle soared like an, er, eagle, before plummeting back to earth at 100mph. Those involved in the project say the plane flew for around six seconds on its own before descending rapidly to Earth.The project was the idea of the Pima Air & Space Museum and Arizona Aerospace Foundation, aimed at inspiring ‘America’s youth and spark a passion for aviation and engineering in the next generation’.10ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
