    Thank you!

    When I was a kid and used to visit a family friend of my grandmother's we would make airplanes similar to this. She always had the stuff stocked at her house for us to make the airplanes when we came over. It uses pretty much the same principle and instead of taping the straw to the "frame" you tape wings and tail stabilizers onto the straw. Make these with kids and they are sure to remember you forever. :D
