Glider Arrow

The original Glider Arrow is had a small glider just large enough for the arrow itself. It was essentially a paper airplane tied to the shaft. The trick was designed to maximize the distance that the arrow could travel.  Green Arrow was conducting a stunt in an attempt to travel “Around the World in Eighty Arrows.” With the right wind, the Glider Arrow could really pick up some distance.
