How To: Fold The 2012 Record Breaking Paper Airplane

February 10, 2017


This is a video of John 'The Paper Airplane Guy' Collins (what a nickname) demonstrating how to fold his paper airplane design with the current distance record, set back in 2012 at 226 feet, 10 inches. The design is a modification of the 'glider' style paper airplanes you may have folded as a kid. Or are folding at your desk now -- I'm not here to judge, I'm here to meet you in the parking lot at lunch for a paper airplane throwing contest. Loser buys happy hour. You know, the key to winning a paper airplane throwing contest isn't entirely reliant on the craftsmanship of your own plane, but the throwing arms of your competitors. "What are you doing with that hammer?" Hold still, the rules don't say I can't.

Keep going for the folding tutorial as well as the record setting throw from 2012.

Thanks to Ham, who has that weird, iridescent shine that makes me not sure if I should eat it or not.
