Steve Spangler Science: Floating Paper Plane

Create an airplane that will hover in place. Is it magic or science?

THIS WAS PART OF AN APRIL FOOL’S DAY PRANK!

We don’t know if the Wright Brothers ever made the attempt, but Steve Spangler has defied the odds to create a hovering airplane. We don’t suggest any passengers (because they wouldn’t fit), but this Floating Paper Plane is a great hands-on science tool for teaching the science behind airplanes, lift and drag, and principles of air.
