They also had a version with a propeler with a long rubber band. Anyone remember that ?
My friend and I had lots of fun. Just to show that some time ago with could have fun with very little.

Those airplanes led me to Whitewings. The glide time of the Whitewings was astounding.

I used to love those balsa wood planes.  You could buy them for $1.  Sometimes they would come as prizes in cereal boxes.

1974 GTX  0 to 60 time of 6.5 seconds and quarter mile finishes of 14.9

Tesla trick  3.8-second run to 60 mph before crossing the quarter mile line in 12.4 seconds at 110.3 mph.

Hate the look but if you want to go fast......

More than 100 years after its sinking,
Belgian divers were surprised to see that the Titanic's swimming pool was still filled with water.
