THE AIR UP THERE I dont know about you, but I grew up in a house where making paper airplanes was a rite of passage. There was even a time when any rectangle of paper was immediately folded into a plane.

I cant say I ever rose above beginner status in my plane making skills, but I full well know the satisfaction of creating a plane that really flies. Theres nothing quite like watching the gentle glide of a paper plane you made with your own two hands as it keeps going and going.

The only thing that was better than a long glide was when I somehow created a plane that did a trick such as a loopty-loop or a nice, easy turn.

That is why I completely understand this love letter video that a grown man made for a creation that he calls Boomaplane a paper plane that comes back to him, just like a boomerang.

He not only demonstrates how his plane works in the video, but he sets the whole thing to the inspirational 90s R&B hit, I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly. Its a glorious and appropriate cap to his sincere yet hilarious love letter to Boomaplane.

The look on his face as Boomaplane comes back to him is more than worth a watch of this 20-second video.
