| by Michael Allen

A 45-foot-long paper airplane, built out of corrugated cardboard, was successfully launched last week over the Arizona desert (video below).

The plane was built by the Pima Air & Space Museum as part of its Great Paper Airplane Project.

The paper craft was dubbed 'Arturo’s Desert Eagle,' after 12-year-old Arturo Valdenegro, on whose model it was based. 

The airplane was designed and built by Art Thompson, who previously helped design the B-2 stealth bomber. It has a 24-foot wingspan and may be the largest paper airplane ever constructed.

The giant paper airplane released at a height of 2703 feet by a Sikorsky helicopter. It reached speeds of up to 100 mph on its way down before crash landing.
