The amazing paper Boeing 777
His Flickr pages are loaded with beautiful macro photos of the work in progress, and he has a You Tube channel with videos showing off the paper airplane's moving parts, including retractable landing gear and cargo and cabin doors that open.
The astonishing thing is that things like the door hinges are true to the actual design. And it took Iaconi-Stewart 20 minutes to craft each seat in the economy cabin.
In an interview with CNET.com, he said he'd like to see the finished model displayed somewhere — "The Museum of Flight, perhaps?"
Or the Future of Flight? He's never been to a Boeing or Airbus factory. And no, Boeing apparently has not approached him. Somebody at Paine Field should call this guy — before someone in Toulouse does.
