back to article LOST Vulture One PARIS spaceplane FOUND!!!

The Register's epic Paper Aircraft Released Into Space (PARIS) project ended in glorious triumph this afternoon as our Spanish ground pursuit team finally discovered the landing site of Vulture One, the cutting edge stationery spacecraft piloted by our intrepid playmonaut. Following a nail-biting few hours in which Vulture One …

Well done, that plymonaut!

And the support team as well. Not surprising at all that the radio guy saved the day.

Only one small hole in the wing, European construction at it's best. You guys could teach NASA a thing or two.

re Playmobile re-enactment

Nah, we need a Live re-enactment. With Lester playing the role of Playmonaut, perhaps?

Well done!

But it did happen ...

And I believe this might be the first-ever recursive simultaneous Playmobil enactment/re-enactment. Well done, probably my favorite "white paper" ever!

I can't help wondering..

..If two craft were made for this eventuality, you know, to fake a success? Conspiracy theorists etc...

It is what I would have done.

I'm confused...

will the re-enactment be done with Playmobile, or in this case will you have to use real people?

Real People

If you use a real person, I have a list of candidates that I would like to be considered for a trip to the edge of space and dropped as part of a paper aeroplane.

"IN YER FACES!!! LOOOOOSERZ!!!"

I presume a suitable email has been dispatched to those whose failure inspired El Reg to take PARIS to great heights ... though it's been a while so I cannot even recall the details!

Well done El Reg and team. A great victory for Britain, er Spain, er ... all concerned.

Small hole in the wing,

The PARIS space program will have to be grounded while the safety of the aircraft is assessed.

I'd have been lost had Vulture 1 not been recovered after all the effort that went into this awesoem project! Hearty pats on the backs for the entire PARIS team, very glad to hear that from the minor damamge it must've flown rather than fallen :D

@Will Leamon

Try looking up "Buran".

America is not the only country to have ever built a space shuttle. Yes, Buran is no longer flying (it only flew once and was destroyed when its hangar collapsed), but in a few months that will apply to the American shuttles too.

So what was the glide ratio on the Buran then?

I can't believe you're going to compare a program that built six shuttles and flew them for 30 years to a program that built one shuttle that flew once and then died in a hanger fire. Sometimes it beggars belief the lengths people will go to belittle U.S. accomplishments. It was a stellar program that will (hopefully) continue on in new ways for another 30 years.

Just with more robots and RC cars. How cool is that?
