I must warn you paper airplane n00bie simpletons, I am the official winner of the 1973 Putnum City High School Aviation Class Annual Paper Airplane Contest.
I will be signing autographs in the lobby.


What's this?

So what was the idea of the retractable wing? Deploy for more lift for slower take off and landing and then retract at speed to go faster with less drag?

...or was it a load carrying capacity thing?

Jimmy Doolittle used to fly it. I don't know who has it now.


Edit: Jim Moss. And it's a replica.
