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.

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.
