Fold and fly

Young "pilots" were in action at Impact in Muang Thong Thani yesterday.

They were competing for a 5,000-baht first prize in a "fold-and-fly" competition.

The contestants make their paper airplanes

The pilots not only had to fly their planes, but they had to make them too.

They were paper airplanes, of course.
