Will it fly?

That is one of my favorite questions. This is my little one and one of her first flying machines. She has fashioned an airfoil from typing paper and used masking tape to mount it to the propulsion unit (read inflated blue balloon). Will it fly? Yes. Not far and not well. But it will fly. I like the way she is thinking.
