Does anyone know where I can find a diagram to make a zoomerang?

It's a plane that flys out and returns to you.

just to clarify :

A zoomerang is a kind of rollcoaster, cf http://images.google.com/images?q=zoomerang

A boomerang is a curved, usually wooden, device which is thrown. A boomerang spins as it flies through the air, and can travel long distances. A boomerang is designed to, when thrown correctly, fly in a curved path to return to the person who threw it. (credits:wikipedia)

No what I'm thinking of is in the book "Origami : The Complete Practical Guide to the Ancient Art of Paperfolding" it's a paper airplane made from origami paper, it doesn't look like a boomerang but it flys in a loop and returns to you.

I'm sure Sanny Ang's diagrams also appear in the BOS London 2000 Convention pack. I remember folding it once but wasn't very skilled at getting the craft to fly back to me!
