Very nice, Tokolosh. Zeer hartelijk bedankt!

The site is well worth visiting. The New York Times included a supplement on the first 100 years of powered flight in its December 9 edition. Some of the articles are online free for a week, at http://www.nytimes.com

I couldn't find an online version a la BBC. But you can download some paper airplanes at: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/12/09/science/sciencespecial2/09PAPER.html
