Introduction: Fold Your Own Sky King Paper Airplane (World Record Holder)

Picture of Fold Your Own Sky King Paper Airplane (World Record Holder)

Takuo Toda 's signature paper
airplane is no ordinary bit of
origami. After launch on April 11,
the snub-nosed craft wafted so high
into the rafters of the vast
Fukuyama Big Rose Hall in
Hiroshima, Japan, that the camera
operator recording the flight lost
sight of it for a couple of seconds.
The clock kept ticking. Finally, 27.9
seconds after it left Toda's hand,
the fittingly named Sky King
drifted to the ground, ending a
flight 0.3 seconds longer than the
previous world record for a paper
plane. Toda, 53, is president of a
company called Castem that builds
metal parts to order. But he has
also dedicated his life to building
innovative paper aircraft. "Since I
was about 4 years old, I've been
able to make really good paper
planes and commit the steps to
memory," Toda says. He has
developed 700 designs, written a
dozen books on the subject, and
created a museum of paper gliders.
