Students Converge on Longview University

     Prospective college students from all over the country came to Longview over the weekend to do, of all things "fly paper airplanes". Over 80 high school students came to take part in aeronautical science preview weekend at Letourneau university.

    They came for a look at the campus and compete in a paper plane flying contest. Each was treated to short flights in private planes even taking the controls for periods. For many it was a look at college life.

     2 high schoolers from Colorado placed first and second in the plane competition.
