Folding Wing Aircraft – Folding Paper Airplane

Airplane

As a co-production with the African American Museum here in town, I conceived/designed this paper airplane that tells the story of Hermon Grimes Sr., the inventor the the folding wing aircraft design that helped win World War II by shortening the war and savings lives.

With every fold, more of Grimes’ story is told. We plan on incorporating this into our MADE History Comic/Aeronautics for kids program.
