You want to talk about the great toy flyers, you're a damned fool if you leave out Chick McReynolds. I was at that school assembly in Buffalo where he sent a paper plane around the auditorium three-and-a-half times, swear to Goshen. And then he brought it in for a landing right in the principal's pitcher of water. They say it's just a legend, but I was there. It was in all the newsreels. Yip Harburg even wrote a song about it.
Now, now all you need's a set of these Whipstick Planes and suddenly you're the Barry Bonds of the toy-glider set. Fancy space-age foam. Shmancy launcher catapult. Adjustable wing flaps for trick flights. You just flick it and it goes 100 feet. Bah! Whatever happened to practice? To skill? To spiralling and crashing a thousand times until you throw that one perfect flight? I'd trade a thousand of these gimmick pilots today for one Chick McReynolds. The things that man could do with a sheet of foolscap.
