you could but the ammount of work you would have to do to get it airborne would not be worth it in the end. If you want a plane just buy a rc one

"Of cource it's possible, yust combine 20 meter long wings and a jet-engine."

It's possible to make one, but if it needs to stay in the air for a long time, you will need to add some cind of engine. (I somtimes use a knex solar-cell for moving parts)
Begin with small hang gliders, to get used to making wings. If you want to make bigger aircrafts, you can better first practice flying in Flight Simulator to get used to all the aspects of aircrafts.

Oh, and don't forget you will need to land too. Landing gear will be verry usefull.

lightest motor i know of is the wind up ones.

maybe a 2 way connector connected to a red connector with flexi rods would generate lift and if a knex motor was light enough and the propellers were identical to the wings but smaller MAYBE you could get a plane.

will you need to kick-start it?

it is theoretically possible, barring the correct conditions. first and foremost, you must have a much more powerful engine than knex makes. Also, the wingspan would have to be large or the weight of the craft must be low. ( with the properties of knex, neither is possible.) The only way i can think of for this to work is to use a hang glider design with a carbon alloy v 12 engine :-)
