Vanishing a Jet

Effect

David Copperfield introduces a private jet surrounded by a ring of spectators. A screen is erected, on which can be seen the jet's shadow. After a few magic words, Copperfield commands that the screen be lowered, and although the ring of people is still intact, the jet is gone!

Secret

The ring of people is, as you may have guessed, in on the trick. When the screen (on which the shadow of the jet has been painted) is erected, the "spectators" break ranks and run to the jet where, using handy tools, they quickly disassemble it. After it has been broken down into manageable pieces, the jet is distributed among the stooges who hide it beneath their clothing before returning to their positions.End of story
