Make your own Plane

The Vulcan Bomber aircraft (a large American bomber) was based at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome. This is why there is a really long runway at Bruntingthorpe (3.2km).

You could make your own paper or balloon powered plane to rival the bomber. How high or far can your plane fly? You could even decorate your plane with your own airline.

Follow the instruction over on the next page to make a paper aeroplane – you don’t have to use these.

You could even plan a walk that is 3.2km in length and walk it. How long will it take you to walk that far?
