I use the end of the second 260 as the front of the plane or you can use a third 260.

Leave a 4/5 finger bubble and a 2 finger un-inflated section. Attach this around the two front pinch twists.

Inflate a clear 260, if you are making this into a hat leave a 2 finger un-inflated,
if just to hold then a 1 finger un-inflated. Attach to the two front pinch twists.

Make this slightly longer than the red 260 so it has a look of the planes canopy, twist it around the pinch twist/side wall bubbles.
The two side wall bubbles should be underneath, then the 260 sits nicely between these.

If you are using the 260 for the plane to fly you leave it like this, if you want to make a hat then make a
12 finger bubble and a 2 finger pinch twist.

Push the air to the end of the balloon and then make a 2 finger bubble and tie around the pinch twist.

If the hat is too small then stretch the 260 clear between your hand to make the hat larger and if the
hat is too large then twist the hat into a triangle that will make the hat size a little smaller.

Hope that all makes sense and look forward to a few posting up the finished hats they have made.

Additions

The front section of the plane might sit nicer with three 2 finger pinch twists at the front of the two hearts.
Also if there was only one 260 underneath the hearts the wings would slightly arrow downwards for a more plane like look.

I do mention in the notes after I made it that three makes the nose section sit nicer.
