Now I have to be the first to admit that I new zip about the underworld of paper planes only a month of so ago…..
Well that was until a friend of mine was telling me about this guy she knows suffered from Cancer and how he changed his life through the flying of paper planes..
His story was run on ABC’s Australian Story and I must say very inspirational. Now the cool thing about this story is that it was made into a movie….
I would urge you to go along to get both links below is it really is an amazing story.

A couple of the things I learned from this was that you just really need to let go and be happy and the other thing was…….. this business of flying paper planes is serious, real serious.
This competition is all around the world with the finalists flying to Austria to compete in the world Championships and its big business. The major sponsor is Red Bull and Qantas as the local major sponsor.
These guys compete for the longest distance, the longest airtime and aerobatics, which is also very amazing.
The camp competition is on today at the Australian Defence Force Academy here in Canberra, to which I have signed onto Red Bull to be there official Canberra Photographer but this even but other Red Bull events….. 😉
So if you are going to it make sure you say hello as the images will be distributed world wide, with the chances of them appearing in and on posters around the world and even in computer games…. YAY for your face being in computer games….
The details of the event can be found here:
