Video: Giant Paper Airplane Takes Flight Over Arizona

Posted: Updated:
Tucson, AZ -

A giant paper airplane takes flight over Arizona. This isn't your kid's average makeshift toy.

This plane can reach speeds up to 100 miles per hour.

It's called the Arturo Desert Eagle named after the 12-year old boy who designed it.

The Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson decided to develop it in 2012. It measures at 45-feet long, 26-feet wide with a wingspan of 24 feet.

The plane is made out of a special type of cardboard and has to be lifted thousands of feet in the air by a helicopter in order for it to fly.

This bird's eye view is actually part of an ad for Go Pro. They've put together a series of videos to promote their cameras.
