I got this sentence somewhere.
So, please help.
Thank you in advance
What is the mistake in the sentence?
Some of the forces that keeps a paper airplane flying keeps the large jets flying in the sky.
I think it is a mistake with subject-V agreement.
The verb ( keeps ) should be ( keep )
But what to do with the second verb; it is also ( keeps) Keeps the large
Hmm , I got it Keeps = forever (Slang); ( adv) '
Suppose my answer is correct. Does the sentence not include a run-on ?

Some of the forces that keep a paper airplane flying keep the large jets flying in the sky.
Some,representing a few forces,is plural.
For keeps,for good,for ever.
