When you are a child, there are a number of activities that you wish could be careers. One of the ones we always fantasized about was “Paper aeroplane Designer.”
This plane was not thrown by the average man either. Former UC Berkeley quarterback and arena football player Joe Ayoob was brought in for the record attempt. And Ayoob was actually not the first choice.
Wired reports that Collins was working with other quarterbacks, but they had prior commitments or injuries that kept them from throwing the plane in the competition. It is unclear if the injuries were paper cuts or something non-paper related.
The plane’s design is not new: Collins had been working on it for four to five years. With that long in gestation, it better be a successful design.
