Thank you, I made this plane form a geo originally. The hearts for wings gives a different look.
I taught this at the last care & share day we had in Exeter.

This is the selection that comes in the complimentary bags for July.

I have added 2 spare hearts as the lobe/sidewall bubble is a little tricky at first.

For those who purchase balloons from us if you post your model onto the forum then
we will pick a winner from the hat on Aug 7th for a balloon modelling DVD.

If you do not purchase your balloons from us...........not a problem, please have a go at the design
and please post it here. It's always nice to have a few new forum members.

Inflate a heart with 5 strokes of the qualatex purple pump or 4 strokes of the green pump.
Make a twist in one side of the lobe, this is a art twist/side wall bubble,

Do the same with a second heart and twist the two twisted lobes together.

Tie the two knots of the hearts tightly together.

Inflate the 260 leaving six fingers un-inflated, make a 3 finger fold twist, then another 3 finger fold twist.

A 4/5 finger bubble and a 2 finger bubble, twist the second bubble into the two fold twists.
Make a small pinch twist so the tail of the plane sits nicely.

Make a 6/7 finger bubble for the rear of the plane, twist this around the two side wall heart bubbles.

Run the balloon along the heart to the front, by the knot and make a 2 finger pinch twist.
The length of the 260 here is approx. a 6/7 finger bubble.

Then make two 2 finger pinch twists and discard the rest of the 260 balloon.

Tie the knot from the hearts tightly into the two pinch twists.

Inflate the next 260 red, leaving a six finger un-inflated section, tie this balloon into the two front pinch twists.
Run underneath the heart another 6/7 finger bubble and twist into the two side wall bubbles.

You should have one 260 over the top and one underneath the two hearts.

Make another 6/7 finger bubble and twist back to the two front pinch twists.


Then the last 6/7 finger bubble back to the two side wall bubbles on the hearts.

Twist a 2 finger pinch twist, this helps the tail sit square and should sit on top of the two side wall bubbles.
