Paper airplanes were made as far back as in ancient China. But the most significant use of paper airplanes was by the Wright brothers, who employed them in creating their designs. The Wrights observed the flexing of their paper models in a wind tunnel and intuited that this could help them control the flight of an airplane. From these simple observations came the hinged aileron and elevator surfaces, which still guide modern aircraft today.
We in Ohio (particularly Dayton, Ohio) like to claim the “rights to the Wrights” (see what we did there?) but then again, so does Indiana, their birthplace, and of course North Carolina, because … well that whole Kitty Hawk thing. No doubt the brothers would be impressed by these beautifully crafted earrings.
