Balsa aeroplanes

I remember seeing a very pretty video of model planes made out of clingfilm and balsa wood, and driven by rubber bands, flying around in an indoor hall for as long as 30 minutes. My search-fu fails me, though. I can find some videos of these "indoor duration" planes, but what I'm looking for is a particular one with fairly high production values. Anyone remember this?

Mythbuster museum exhibit takes off

Still not convinced about that plane on a conveyor belt thing? (See also here here and here.) Well, now you can try it for yourself at the new Mythbusters exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry.
