Today, if you want to fly an airplane, its as easy as going to a store with a toy section, and buying one.

When cleaning out the house, some of my Grandfather’s possessions were divided up among the family, and one thing that many seemed to express interest in was an old balsa wood airplane my Grandfather made on a vacation at the old family cottage. All of which was quickly and carefully cut out and replaced, which is pretty damn cool when you consider how easy it is to repair the airplane.
