A boomerang acts like a wing, which is why it flies. But the curve of the boomerang wing, combined with the spin given by throwing it holding from one end, causes the air flowing over the boomerang to twist it, and to put it into a curving flight path. Thrown right, the boomerang hits its target. (It was originally a hunting weapon.) Thrown almost right, it makes a large circle. It comes back to the thrower so he can try again without running to pick it up. Beats a spear any day.
Because of its shape and the manner in which it is thrown. A crescent-shaped piece of card with rounded ends will act like a boomerang if flicked off a sloping surface so that it spins round and round flatwise while climbing. The spin prevents it turning over, so that in effect it is like a disc. On reaching the highest point of its flight it returns to earth in the direction which is easiest while its tilt remains unaltered, that is, backwards.
