Out of the blue of the western sky comes … yes, the Songbird
— but she's not alone. Soaring in formation beside her are … Daedalus
reaching for the sun … Pegasus
shooting for the stars … the graceful Stratospheron
and her fleet of followers, Baker F-399
, Baker X-411
, and the Phantom.
An imaginary air force? No, a model one — eight original, aerodynamically sound paper airplanes, ready to build and waiting to fly — waiting for you, the engineer-pilot, to let them glide, circle, loop, and perform as they must, when cut and assembled according to clear, simple instructions.
These eight full-color, full-sized planes need only scissors, glue, paper clips, a penny, and a few other inexpensive materials to get them off the ground. Their modern, state-of-the-art design by noted graphic artist Arthur Baker allows adjustment of rudder, ailerons, and elevators. This book is a safe and convenient "hangar" for the planes until they are cut and made … after that the stratosphere is their home!
