I didn’t get a chance to participate in August’s challenges but am eager to try a few for September. Today’s challenge is airplane, and rather than doodling a real airplane I thought it would be fun to try one of the old-fashioned balsa wood types we played with as children. Remember – the ones with the plastic propellers and rubber band engines? Some also had adjustable metal pieces to clip on the nose of the plane in order to make it do something fancy, I guess.
Most of our planes (or gliders – the official name) didn’t last more than an hour or two because of a crash landing, getting stuck high in a tree, or landing on a roof that was already cluttered with a few Frisbees and Wiffle balls. If we were lucky a strong breeze would rescue a plane and send it back down to us, but most of the time my dad would have to get out the ladder and retrieve our errant toys from the roof – Thanks Dad!
TGIF – Hope you all enjoy the nice, long Labor Day weekend!
