A Bit About Paper Airplanes

My grandparents were foster parents and lived in a large house. One of the best things about visiting my grandparents was playing with all the kids. In the winter time we would spend hours flying paper airplanes in the upstairs hallway. At that time and place we were just concerned with having fun and were not concerned with the why's behind things. However, the fascination about things was simply slower to come.



Who did make the first paper airplane?? Why did they do it?? 

The Chinese deserve some credit for helping to create the airplane. Over 2000 years ago they created the first airplane. Another great explanation of creating the airplane was the inventor Leonardo DaVinci. It was a creation that occurred he was working on another invention DaVinci was always interested in the idea of human flight and most likely played around with paper while creating his designs Jack Northrop takes credit for helping to design the modern form of paper airplane. Northrop was the co-founder of the Lockheed aircraft corporation during the 1930s. .
