Turbulentius’ Aeroplane

When Turbulentius was a kid he had a dream. He dreamt he could fly. This is a pretty common dream, but when he woke up, he found an origami folded paper plane next to his head.

Growing up he never found out how this happened, his parents always denied their involvement. This one incident led to a lifelong quest for the air. During the day he went to his tedious job, at night he studied aerodynamics and engineering and worked on his aeroplane. After 30 years of dreaming and working hard he finally got it done, his first succesful flight!
