James May of the BBC's "Top Gear" has been fascinated with flight since childhood. As a boy, he created airplanes with paper, balsa wood and glue. "I spent hours making gliders with different wing shapes, and that's how I learnt the basics of aerodynamics. If you do things like that, it's quite easy to grasp the fundamentals and you can easily start designing little airplanes of your own," said May.
