Two Guys Made an Airplane Out of Falafel Fridays Paper Wrappers, and It Flies

In 2015 Singapore Airlines commissioned an Airbus A380 model aircraft made with manila envelopes. The seats inside even recline because, as they conclude their video, it’s the small details that make giants in the sky.

However as far as I’m aware the Singapore Airlines manila envelope A380 never flew. In contrast creative production company Wondros held a paper airplane contest. Two employees in the editorial department made a plane out of recycled lunch wrappers from the company’s “Falafel Fridays.”

With Boeing struggling and lacking direction for its NMA (New Midsize Airplane) project, Falafel Fridays may just be the new technology they’re looking for to find a 757 replacement.
