University students claim to have created the perfect paper airplane
A group of students have impressed judges but upset purists with their design, which echoes Concorde
A TEAM of young scientists has created what they believe to be the perfect paper plane.
It can fly more than 100ft (30m) and remain aloft for about 20 seconds. Most importantly, it is easy to make. The plane, named Avenger, has been judged by academics to contain the ideal balance between complex aerodynamic principles and simplicity of design. Its looks may also have helped: the delta wing is reminiscent of Concorde.
