Here is a paper airplane that looks like a regularly folded paper plane but in fact, this folded design is the same one that was used to establish a new Guinness World Book of Records for the longest recorded flight by a paper airplane!

“John Collins” is the creator of this paper airplane design and recently gave a workshop
on how to fold paper airplanes for students of the Harvard Graduate School of Design and School of Engineering Applied Sciences that was recorded on video and then later posted on YouTube.

It is a surprisingly simple folding method! Please give it a try!

It is surprisingly simple folding method! By the way, the established world record of the paper airplane folded by this folded paper air plane was recorded on February 26th, 2012 and a distance of 226 feet 10 inches (69.1388 m) was achieved with a former American footballer named “Joe Ave” throwing the plane!

A detailed method of folding.

In addition to the videos released this time, “John Collins” explains how to fold a
paper airplane that established a world record.

▼ First, prepare a piece of A4 paper and make a crease in the paper as shown in the image.

▼ At this time, try not to fold perfectly on the folded crease so try to open the gap to about 1 mm from the fold.
