Look! Up in the Air! It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's Panties!

     As I promised you in my last blog,  the subject of panties can be a fascinating one. This is from an article By Charlie Sorrel, who wrote about Flying Panties.

     "Flying panties?" you say in disbelief. "Where on earth could you find flying panties?"

     And of course we all know the answer, where all the cool things are....in Japan. If you should happen to be in Tokyo on March 6th, look up into the sky. You'll see hundreds of pairs of panties. The panties are made into ornithopters, which will all be launched at the same time.

     OK you are not sure what an ornithopter is, but you know panties flying around when you see them. Ornithopters are flying machines that flap wings to fly, instead of using a propellor. These machines are powered by rubber bands. Kits will be on sale to make your own to let fly on March 6th.

     The author goes on to say that it is a promotional stunt for publicity for a Japanese manga cartoon. Just in case you wonder, other flying machines will be launched at the same time but I don't think they will be nearly as interesting.

     As for me, I am wondering if any studies have been done on which panties fly best? cotton or nylon? manties or panties? thongs or briefs? high rise or low rise? There is much more to be learned about panty aviation.

Kinda reminds me of the good ol'(though ecologically suspect) "balloon release" at Riverside :)

I guess this could be called a Bloomer Release!

Ha! Great piece! I would think thongs would fly well - they're lightweight and kind of "swoopy" so they should be aerodynamic *grin*

Granny panties and tightie whities probably get the best parachute action.

Do you get more lift with granny panties?
