Of all of the hundreds, if not thousands of paper aeroplanes I made as a boy, only twice did I manage to fling them into thermals from a flat field launch and only one of those went OOS.

I was trimming it for a school paper aeroplane competion when I can't have been much more than nine. It was with a strange mixture of awed amazement and disappointment that I watched my prize flyer disappearing up, up and away. Thankfully it was quickly replaced, I managed to win the competition and spend a day (with a few runners up) at RAF Scampton talking to the Red Arrows pilots before watching them practice from the edge on the runway. A good day out!
