5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The Paper Aircraft Released Into Space (PARIS) team would like to assure readers that we will be providing full constructional details of the Vulture 1 aircraft - just as soon as the thing's finished

In response to requests for plans of the beast, we've enlisted some top-notch illustrative and CAD operatives to make sure that every detail is lovingly captured for your viewing pleasure.

So, if you'll bear with us, we will at some stage be able to demonstrate how you too can turn a box of 500 paper straws, some tissue paper and dope into a cutting-edge high-altitude vehicle.

In the meantime, you'll have to make do with imagining just how this would look as a 3D rendering. Hmmmmm...
