Avions – OORAA!

AvionsPierre Hyvernat wrote to me from France for permission to use some of my plane designs at an event by the Organisation des Origamistes de Rhône-Alpes et d’Ailleurs (OORAA, a French cheer). I know nothing about them, but happily granted their request. Here are some photos from the event. I know little else about it!

You can see the paper planes on the Guardian newspaper website, complete with garish colour schemes. It’s slightly ironic that the plane named after my freundin aus Freising, Silke, has a German cross emblazoned on it…

Somewhat depressingly, my first proper book on paper airplanes is still in print around the world and I got a (very) flat fee of £1200 for it.
