paper/cardboard/tape airplanes

in our conversations about travel and transportation, we discussed airplanes.  figured out was that they can go over water, but they can also go over land.  they can go from country to country, but also city to city.  one answer i didn’t have was what is the SHORTEST distance an airplane can take us.  how many blocks would a plane need to take off and then land?  good question! anyone know?

we used snack boxes, packing boxes, and LOTS of masking tape to build airplanes.  they only guidelines were at least one long piece for the body and two wings.  it was a busy time building, trying it out, adjusting, trying it out again, etc.
