Out of the blue of the western sky comes yes, the Songbird but she's not alone. Soaring in formation beside her are Daedalus and Icarus reaching for the sun Pegasus shooting for the stars the graceful Stratospheron and her fleet of followers, Baker F-399, Baker X-411, and the Phantom.
An imaginary air force? No, a model one eight original, aerodynamically sound paper airplanes, ready to build and waiting to fly waiting for you, the engineer-pilot, to let them glide, circle, loop, and perform as they must, when cut and assembled according to clear, simple instructions.
