I just built a Suzanne, it flew outside a lest 200 feet. I fly model airplanes and I am a AMA member. Making a paper airplane and flying it is just great. Changing the wing till it flew just right took a little time, I got it till it flew in a big circle right back to me.

The Suzanne was NOT " invented" by that John person on the program. I am a 50 year old person originally from Caracas, Venezuela. I learned from my school mates in primary school how to fold a piece of paper into a paper plane with the exact folds of the Suzanne. please check the veracity of your sources before airing a program.
