This is the original glider you recall from childhood, still made in Massachusetts by the same firm that developed them in the 1950s, and just as much fun as you remember. It has the same nostalgic look of a '50s-era jet fighter and, as always, comes as a five-piece kit of die-cut balsa parts that press-fit together in seconds (no glue or tools needed). With a little practice, you can make it perform a high "loop-the-loop" maneuver before gliding horizontally for a surprising distance.
11 1/2" long with a 12" wingspan, this classic toy is a thrill for almost any age.
And yes, they are just as fragile as you remember – they won't last forever, but at this price, it's impossible not to get your money's worth (just be sure to order at least one for yourself!).
Made in USA.
